New ISR Flip from KSV NIMA - Innovation from collaboration

Biolin Scientific just presented ISR Flip from KSV NIMA - the most sensitive interfacial shear rheometer yet. ISR Flip is a versatile tool to analyze surfactants and their influence on foam and emulsion stability. The instrument expands the understanding of interfacial layers, which can be useful in applications such as food, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals.

To gain maximum user insight and application expertise ISR Flip was developed in close collaboration with Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED) in Madrid.
– We believe working together is the key to success. Therefore, Biolin Scientific collaborated with UNED in Spain, for the ISR Flip project. The team at UNED developed a new, patented way of controlling the magnetic probe at the interface. At Biolin Scientific, we have worked with several interfacial rheology techniques before, so our respective inputs helped create this next-generation interfacial rheology tool, says Susanna Laurén, Global Commercial Portfolio Manager for KSV NIMA.

– We realized that the use of a mobile magnetic trap to drive the probe was a game-changer for this technique in terms of both accuracy and user experience. We enjoyed being part of this collaboration to provide the scientific and industrial community with this advance, says the team from UNED.

Researchers can enjoy great advantages with the new instrument:
• Highly sensitive measurements
Detect even the smallest interfacial forces and expand the research beyond what is possible with other interfacial rheometers.
• Combine with Langmuir troughs
Run experiments with controlled packing density by combining ISR Flip with KSV NIMA troughs.
• Study several systems with the same instrument
Double camera positions and trough combinations make the instrument versatile and ready for possible future needs.

ISR Flip will be available for order soon from Biolin Scientific, but you can show your interest now by requesting a quote.
