BI-RIVS Differential Refractive Index and Viscometry Detector

The BI-RIVS is a true Dual-Detector Differential Refractometer and Viscometer sets a new standard for the detection of intrinsic viscosity of highly diluted GPC/SEC samples.

The refractometer is an integral component of the viscometer bridge allowing for the measurement of concentration and viscosity take place on the exact same sample segment, at the very same time. This combination allows a much more accurate determination of molecular parameters and is particularly suited for applications focused on the structure and branching of the investigated polymer.

The BI-RIVS Dual-Detector is compatible with all kinds of applications, at any temperature up to 80 °C and with any solvent.
