HTR: Rheometer automation for high sample throughput and complex sample handling
The world’s first fully automated high-throughput rheometer
The HTR automation series offers an optimized analysis workflow for rheological investigations based on Anton Paar’s MCR 702 rheometer. The extensive set of features and the built-in flexibility make it the ideal choice for sophisticated and high-throughput R&D or QC work.
Maximized operation flexibility
HTR can be equipped with up to 96 measuring geometry units (e.g. for polymer melts) and offers three different rheological geometries (CC, CP, PP) The standard rack configuration holds 96 samples. Different types of racks for pipettes, syringes, and trim blades and temperature-controlled sample storage (down to 4 °C) are available.
Perfectly safe and accurate workflow
HTR achieves lab accuracy due to the mechanical decoupling of rheometer and automation unit and is set up for maximum efficiency:
Sample management by using job lists
LIMS integration (file transfer, database, Ethernet)
Priority samples can be introduced at any time
Four-stage programmable cleaning station (rinse, brush, clean, dry)
Integrated trim tool removes excessive sample material to avoid wrong measurement results
Visual verification of trim result
Masters all kinds of rheological samples
HTR offers different systems for:
System for liquid samples with up to 1000 mPa.s which are suited for exact dispensing
