Do you work with detergent products and need to find out which components work the best, or are good enough? If your product performs better than competition? Or if you can switch to a more ecofriendly or cost efficient component?
Balancing performance and cost throughout the product lifecycle is challenging. Especially as most cleaning evaluation methods are manual and time consuming, have a low sensitivity and leave room for subjective interpretation.
QSense® is the new way to test detergent performance. With automated measurements and results in less than an hour you can get high quality data that reveals the cleaning process with nanogram sensitivity. So that you can be Faster, Cleaner and Greener.
With QSense you will achieve high resolution real-time data on cleaning efficiency and cleaning mechanisms, enzymatic activity and material deposition as well as etching.
You can study your unique case:
The QSense Cleaning Profile is an established and proven method for ranking of detergent formulations with the QSense® technology . It is automated, easy and brings you results in less than an hour. It contains key information for cleaning efficiency evaluation, such as:
The QSense Cleaning Profile consists of three parameters; Swelling time, Mass removal rate and Total mass removal which all give important information about cleaning efficiency. See this QSense Cleaning Profile step by step guide for a walk-through of how the measurement is performed.
Detergent efficiency can be linked to its ability to wet the surface to be cleaned. The surface tension of the detergent solution plays a big role in this. In general, the lower the surface tension, the better the wetting ability of the solution. Surfactants are the main components used to lower the surface tension of detergent solutions. To optimize the amount of surfactants, critical micelle concentration measurements are used.
