Salvona is constantly investing in new and proven tools that can shorten development time and yield stable, effective, products.  Recently, our team has added the LUMiSizer (by L.U.M. GmbH) to help in product development.

The LUMiSizer® Dispersion Analyzer is a sophisticated tool for stressing an emulsion, suspension, or solution sample and recoding the resulting phenomena. These phenomena may include, but are not limited to separation, precipitation, and flocculation.

The LUMiSizer® Dispersion Analyzer stresses the material by applying heat and centrifugal force to a sample. Any change in the sample is recorded by measuring changes in light transmission through the material over the period of testing.

Analyzing the response of a sample to this stress allows for a determination of relative sample stability. Comparing a sample to formulas with established room temperature, shelf life allows relative stability data to act as predictive stability data.

The LUMiSizer® is one of many tools used at Salvona to create our cutting edge solutions.  We'll be posting more information about how Salvona tests and qualifies its products on this blog - stay tuned!
