The world reference stability analyzer

TurbiscanLAB enables fast and sensitive identification of destabilization mechanisms (such as creaming, sedimentation, flocculation, coalescence...). A temperature-controlled measurement cell allows either stability monitoring at specific storage temperatures or accelerating destabilization process. TurbiscanLAB can be used in both R&D and QC labs for development and routine control of raw materials and final product formulations. The instrument not only detects stability evolution at an early stage, up to 200 times faster compared to visual testing but also quantifies global formula alteration with TSI scale.

Highlights of Turbiscan Lab

Wide concentration range

TurbiscanLAB analyzes sample stability without dilution or mechanical stress. Concentrations up to 95% can be characterized in their native state giving a unique insight to particle migration and size variation.

Measurement of stability & size

 > Quantitative monitoring of dispersion stability
> Shelf life & long term stability analysis
> Migration velocity
> Aggregation & agglomeration kinetics
Mean diameter
 Dispersibility ratio
> Volume fraction

Accelerated aging conditions

Temperature control up to 60°C offers the possibility to speed up measurement time and observe destabilization in real usage and storage conditions. TURBISCAN technology is up to 200 times faster than traditional visual tests.

Turbiscan Stability Index

TSI scale provides a single value to rapidly asses and rank formulation stability independently on occurring phenomena. It is now possible to evaluate sample stability with just one number.

Key benefits

TURBISCAN is the world reference technology for direct physical stability analysis. With hassle-free sample preparation, intuitive software and highly reliable measurements, Turbiscan LAB has become an irreplaceable tool for any formulator.

The instrument measures a single sample at a time but can be upgraded to an automated aging station with a dedicated robot arm and 3 storage racks with independent temperature regulation (RT+5°C to 60°C). In this configuration, up to 54 samples can be analyzed. Learn more

Turbiscan LAB is designed to work with disposable glass cells of 4 or 20mL but the complete kit is also available for foams and viscous product analysis.
