A quick, precise 2-in-1 solution
The Micro Visco-Amylo-Graph combines the functions of the Viscograph-E< and Amylograph-E in one device. Thanks to small sample sizes of 5–20g, plus a higher heating and cooling rate, the measurement time is shorter than that of traditional methods.
The measuring principle is similar to that of the Viscograph-E: a starch-water or flour-water suspension is heated in a rotating bowl and cooled down again, both under controlled conditions. Use the standard procedure (heating – holding – cooling) or save your own temperature profiles.
The special geometry of the paddle ensures good mixing of the sample — there is no sedimentation of starch particles. Temperature measurement directly within the sample makes it easy to always precisely assign the temperature to the current viscosity.

Brabender’s cross-device software solution provides a consistent user experience between all Brabender units. The MetaBridge comes with various data evaluation functionality, preimplemented standards and customizable measurement methods in order to meet application specific requirements. Regular updates improve and expand your device and let you automatically benefit from the latest trends and developments.
The MetaBridge Connect technology provides various data exchange interfaces and flexible connectivity features. Data sharing between all Brabender MetaBridge devices in one network allows for smart workflows and process efficiency. Moreover, the integrated web-based software interface (WebAPI) connects and automatically exchanges data with natively connected database systems and / or 3rd party laboratory information and management systems (LIMS) or ERP solutions.
MetaBridge Correlation is an optional software package for performing correlation studies across multiple data sets. It allows for comparison of multiple measurements and parameters in a tabular and in an interactive graphical view. Particularly for quality control purposes, the compliance with a pre-defined tolerance is automatically evaluated and highlighted.
The EvaluationEditor enables the creation of customer-specific evaluations. You are able to define logical, mathematical operations based on the measured data. These are calculated automatically and displayed after the completion of a measurement. This allows a qualitative comparison of the measured data based on a few significant points
The MetaBrigde Database represents a local data center in the customer network and a basic laboratory information and management systems (LIMS) for Brabender devices. Connected Brabender devices transfer measurement results automatically into the central MetaBridge database. Besides of the backup functionality, statistical analysis and crossdevice correlations between multiple data sets can be performed.
labfolder allows you to store, manage and search your measurement data in one central location, independent of the instrument. Brabender MetaBridge instruments have an automated built-in connection to labfolder. It’s never been easier to get started with lab digitization.
