Obtaining accurate viscosity values of proteins can detect protein unfolding or denaturation. Read our application library to learn more:
When the protein compounds begin to unfold or denaturate, small changes in viscosity occur. The RheoSense m-VROC™ viscometer is designed to detect these small changes using only a small sample. This makes m-VROC™ a useful tool to investigate drug stability without needing to dilute the sample.
With an innovative method of viscosity measurement that uses a chip with a rectangular slit formed with glass and a monolithic Si pressure sensor array, m-VROC™ combines MEMS and microfluidic methods to deliver data with the highest accuracy and repeatability. In addition, m-VROC™ prevents any film formation which cone and plate rheometers are susceptible to. Film formation poses a threat to protein solutions.
