Highthroughput Rheometer HTR from Anton Paar

Product Announcement from Anton Paar

Highthroughput Rheometer HTR from Anton Paar-Image

The first fully automated rheometer for high-throughput experimentation is based on the established Physica MCR series. The rheological measurement are carried out by the MCR and the Rheoplus software, while the robot takes care of the sample loading, trimming and the cleaning of the upper and lower measuring system.

Technical Highlights

  • Twenty-four hour operation
  • Reliable rheological measurement with a standard Physica MCR rheometer
  • For cone-plate, parallel plate and concentric cylinder systems
  • Fully automated sample loading and trimming
  • Barcode reader for sample identification
  • Fully automated cleaning with customized procedures
  • Full range of rheological measuring parameters in rotation and oscillation
  • Temperature control with Peltier heated and electrically heated systems


  • Method development with the Rheoplus software
  • Automated analysis, printout and export of measuring data
  • LIM/SAP interface for software control through a master system
  • Methods and data are interchangeable between lab and automation equipment
  • Individual set of measuring and analysis parameters for any number of samples
