Micro Visco-Amylo-Graph

The Brabender Micro Visco-Amylo-Graph measures temperature-dependent and time-dependent viscosity properties, especially of flours, starches and other materials. Furthermore, it also provides you with information on enzyme activity (α-amylases).

Your advantages

  • Small sample quantities: 5-20 g or 110 ml
  • Flexible: programmable speed and temperature profiles
  • MetaBridge software: user-guided workflows, reference limits, measurement correlations, customizable methods & parameters, and more
  • Connectivity: Support for third-party solutions (ERP, LIMS)

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.

Cross-product benefits

MetaBridge Standalone

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.

MetaBridge Connect

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

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.

MetaBridge EvaluationEditor

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

MetaBrigde Database

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.

MetaBridge labfolder

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.
