Viscosity is a key indicator of quality in a wide range of biotech applications, from pharmaceuticals and mechanical devices to medical laboratories and research centers. Viscosity measurement is important when it comes to determining a wide range of data points—such as at what point can a fluid flow through a syringe? Are shear and cavitation stress impacted by pushing a liquid through a narrow cavity? The list of biotech activities that require process monitoring and measurement of viscosity is long.
Cambridge Viscosity is playing an important part in the development of new and innovative biotechnical and pharmaceutical solutions by developing robust equipment that accurately measures viscosity in exceptionally small fluid sample volumes. Our viscometers are easy to operate and require very little maintenance. We work closely with biotech companies and universities to assess their specific needs and ensure that our solutions enable them to achieve their goals.
Whether it’s enabling scientists to know the right size motor to place in a pump so it doesn’t clog, or ensuring that chemicals dissipate at the right rate when introduced into the bloodstream, in both process and laboratory environments our products have a small footprint but a huge impact on success and failure in a wide range of critically important biotech applications.
