Topical treatments are commonly administered to treat skin conditions or inflammation and irritation. How these are formulated, stored and applied to the skin is very much down to their rheological behavior.
NETZSCH North America Commercial Testing Laboratory has set up a series of live demos based on questions we frequently hear in the field, at conferences and exhibitions about how our instruments work and the best measurements can be made. These demos are the short and sweet! Read more about the series and register for the first episode on 30 June 2020!
The University of Queensland, in collaboration with the Non-Conforming Building Products (NCBP) Audit Taskforce in Queensland, Australia, have proposed a framework to provide a robust methodology to assess the fire hazard of cladding materials in existing buildings based on a thorough understanding of the relevant fire phenomena. Thermogravimetric Analysis enhances the robustness of the framework. Read here how the method is applied to evaluate the risk of external fire spread on buildings.
The Kinexus is being used to assist in the development of a new treatment for COVID-19!
Alucent Biomedical Inc. is a biomedical company dedicated to developing its breakthrough Natural Vascular Scaffolding (NVS) technology for the treatment of vascular disease. Multiple sample preparation techniques were evaluated to investigate a method that could alleviate signal artifacts attributed to sample movement during heating. Learn how the sample is prepared to achieve accurate and reproducible thermograms for biological tissue.
Whether DSC, TGA, STA or complex coupling with gas analysis, our virtual laboratory visits offer our customers the opportunity to get to know all instruments and our software live and in detail.
In the previous articles, focusing on thermal analysis under humidity, we have seen that thermogravimetric analysis and dynamic mechanical analysis help determine the influence of water on a material or substance. Thermomechanical analysis complements the analysis under humidity.
Water is one of the major parts influencing our climate. Our atmosphere is filled with water. We may not always be able to see it, but it interacts with us and our materials. Learn how thermal analysis helps identify water absorption and determine water content.
The shelf-life of a pharmaceutical product concerning thermal stability can be predicted using thermogravimetry measurements and the software Kinetics Neo.
