Stability Analyser LUMiFuge® - The only direct and accelerated stability analysis
The new generation of the approved Stability Analyser LUMiFuge® considerably simplifies the industrial quality control by the introduction of the instability index in SEPView® 6 software. The LUMiFuge® permits the user in quality control and research departments to evaluate the shelf-life of his products from 4 °C to 60 °C. Products are analyzed with original final storage and usage conditions, independent of being sold to cold, moderate or hot climatic regions. Fast and flexible reaction on constantly changing customer requirements is guaranteed.
LUMiFuge®, based on an analytical centrifuge, has become a standard method for fingerprinting and rapid formulation testing of dispersions. On the basis of the patented STEP-technology®, the device determines simultaneously the demixing processes of 8 different dilute or concentrated suspensions/emulsions. LUMiFuge® accelerates the demixing process up to 2300 times. The obtained results correlate well with the sample behaviour at normal gravity. The innovative analyser performs stability tests and shelf-life determinations of original dispersions up to 5000 times faster than in a test tube under earth gravity. The extended temperature control from 4 °C to 60 °C makes the LUMiFuge® the instrument of choice for a broad range of applications in chemical, cosmetic, food and pharma industries, in the paint and petrol sectors.
