Viscograph-E

The Viscograph-E provides you with a complete picture of the gelatinisation behaviour of starches and all types of modified starches.

Your advantages

  • Convenient measurement and analysis software
  • Programmable speed profiles
  • Reliable, reproducible measurement results
  • Save any number of temperature programmes
  • Heating and cooling rates from 0.5–3°C per min
  • Electronic speed control from 0–200 rpm
  • Analysis in BU, mPas or cmg

Versatile use and precise results

For decades now, the Viscograph-E has been the worldwide standard device for temperature-based and time-based measurement of the viscosity of starch and products containing starch. Examination of your sample using this well-established solution provides you with a detailed characteristics profile of your test material that goes far beyond just the gelatinisation of the starch.

Thanks to the automatic programme sequence and comprehensive configuration options, your tests are carried out easily and conveniently. You can create as many individual temperature, time and speed programmes, as well as analysis profiles, as you like.

The measuring probe is placed directly in the sample, which guarantees the highest degree of measurement accuracy and reproducibility of the analyses carried out.

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.
