RheoScope Module for the HAAKE™ MARS™ Rheometer Thermo Scientific™
Simultaneously measure rheological properties and changes in the microscopic structure of a sample with the Thermo Scientific™ RheoScope Module for the Thermo Scientific™ HAAKE™ MARS™ Rheometer platform. The results allow researchers to speed up formulation development, process optimization and product processability.
Controlled Test Chamber (CTC) and Related Accessories for the HAAKE™ MARS™ Rheometers Thermo Scientific™
The Thermo Scientific™ HAAKE™ MARS™ Rheometer platform features a controlled test chamber (CTC) that guarantees a sample’s temperature is reliable and accurate during rheological measurement. With two independently movable half-shells, the CTC offers:
- Fast sample loading, trimming, and cleaning due to easy sample access
- Ability to keep chamber closed behind the sample while still controlling temperature
- Ability to use other temperature control modules with the CTC in “park” position

Rheonaut Module for HAAKE™ MARS™ Rheometers Thermo Scientific™
The Thermo Scientific™ Rheonaut Module with the Thermo Scientific™ HAAKE™ MARS™ Rheometer Platform simultaneously measures rheological properties and structural changes on the molecular level using FT-IR spectroscopy. The combined analysis allows extensive investigations of structural changes under deformation/shear as well as thermally induced or UV curing. Understanding rheological phenomena on the molecular level enables researchers to speed up formulation development and process optimization.
RheoRaman Module for HAAKE™ MARS Rheometers Thermo Scientific™
Track molecular structures as a function of stress, strain and temperature with the RheoRaman Module for Thermo Scientific™ HAAKE™ MARS™ Rheometers. This module combines rheological measurements – to analyze how a substance behaves under stress or strain – with simultaneous Raman spectroscopy – to help explain why it behaves that way by providing information on the sample’s micro-structure.
Running rheological and spectroscopy tests on the same sample simultaneously allows you to correlate the data without any doubt and saves time. A typical application for these combined techniques would be the chemical analysis of polymers. The hyphenated technique would provide insight into molecular changes such as the breaking of bonds, crystallinity, etc. It’s useful for temperature-dependent analysis of emulsions as well as gels, pastes and other polymeric material.
