Thermo Scientific HAAKE MARS

The Thermo Scientific high-end rheometer, HAAKE MARS assists rheological testing in the Cosmetic Industry, allowing for the full characterisation of suspensions and emulsions. Providing reliable measuring data the Thermo Scientific HAAKE MARS allows for the testing of parameters like shelf life, haptic and sensoric properties. In addition, cosmetic processability and production processes can also be enhanced.

The Thermo Scientific HAAKE MARS enables customers to examine the connection between a sample’s microscopic structures and rheological properties to analyse stability of multiphase systems or particle size distribution. Visible structures in solutions, suspensions, emulsions, gels and foams can be investigated for rheological phenomena including shear thinning, dilatancy, thixotropy, emulsification, coalescense, aggregation, gelification, dissolution, and flocculation. The rheological and optical data can be monitored during the measurement as well as saved and exported in different formats for further analysis.

Focused on the specific needs for quality control and optimizing production processes, the Thermo Scientific HAAKE MARS platform includes a range of accessories available for the Cosmetic Industry. For example by using a universal holder for individual containers like glass jars, cans, beakers or cups users no longer need to spend time pouring samples into a measuring cup and as cleaning the cup afterwards. An additional benefit is no destruction to the testing material’s structure. Continuous measurements and analysis of small quantities can be directly conducted in microtiter plates.

Efficient and user-friendly measuring routines are guaranteed by the measuring and evaluation software for viscometers and rheometers, the Thermo Scientific HAAKE RheoWin. The software is continuously adapted to customer needs and can be customised to offer convenient operation with default settings for beginners and full access to all relevant measuring parameters for advanced rheologists. Optional software modules are available that e.g. ensure compliance with pharma-specific requirements.
