Surface Analyser

Wetting of surfaces and solid-liquid-interaction

Wetting of surfaces and solid-liquid-interaction can be precisely measured with contact angle instruments. The LAUDA Surface Analysers series LSA 60, 100 and 200 can be adapted to any laboratory requirement. Especially the easy handling and the very comprehensive software support the daily routine in the laboratory and allow precise measurement results.

LAUDA Scientific offers you innovative features such as simultaneous measurements in projection and top-view, telecentric lenses for research applications or non-contact dosing systems.

VAS 15/2 automatic sampler with 2 measuring stands

Automatisation and safety at work

Automation and safe handling of aggressive solvents are now also available for small and medium-sized laboratories from LAUDA Scientific. The new VAS 15/2 has all the technical advantages of the VAS 1/4, which is appreciated by many users worldwide, but is suitable for smaller fume hoods and smaller budgets.

The VAS 1/4 now also has a new drive concept and will in future be called VAS 24/2 or VAS 24/4.


Precise measurement made easy with capillaries

Glass viscometers from LAUDA Scientific are available right now in the Visco.Fix system. This makes handling considerably easier and makes your everyday work in the laboratory significantly safer. The new Visco.Fix system also aids storage and cleaning: Up to four capillaries can be stored upright, allowing them to be filled at any time. Four additional capillaries can be suspended in parallel in separate beakers to drip dry – the perfect, safe storage solution. Handling glass viscometers has never been easier or safer.

Tensiometer TD4

User-friendly, precise, compact

The TD4 is a compact ring/plate tensiometer, which, as a standalone device, offers maximum ease of use in research and development, as well as for quality control. The graphic operating unit with touch-screen enables accurate tracking of measurements (even time-dependent measurements). The pre-programmed standard methods, the GLP-compliant user management system, the optional equipment with a small Peltier-based thermostat (PTT+) and the intuitive user guiding make the TD4 a compact and precise measuring instrument.

Tensiometer TC1

Precision and user-friendliness in the entry-level class

For the first time, the compact TC1 offers maximum precision and ease of use, even for manual devices. Precisely repeatable and with a high resolution, measurements are made problem-free for the first time with the integrated assistant. No other device in this class measures more precisely. Also featured are integrated standard methods, an acoustic measuring assistant, GLP-compliant user management and extendibility using the compact PTT+, which not only makes temperature control thermostating highly precise but also saves space.


Two temperatures in parallel with the precision of the Ubbelohde capillary

Routine viscosity measurements demand a high level of precision both in temperature and time measurement. The Duo.Visc with its two independent thermoelectric Peltier heating/cooling systems allows to have the most stable and precise measurements without consuming valuable bench-space in the laboratory. The wide range of available capillaries covers the complete viscosity range. The easy to use Duo.Visc software helps to meet the requirements of today’s laboratories.


Viscosity measurement made easy

Small sample volume, small bench space requirements, straightforward user interface, but precise measurements and a wide temperature range: The LAUDA Scientific easy.Visc is the easy way to successful viscosity measurements in the laboratory, in QC or in the warehouse. Due to its intelligent temperature control and the small sample volume the sample reaches the right temperature very quickly. Besides the dynamic viscosity the parallel measurement of the density allows the calculation of the kinematic viscosity
