Malvern Kinexus

A modular rheometer with true ‘plug and play’ functionality for all measuring systems and environmental control units. Targeted at the characterization of dispersions and other complex fluids and soft solids, the Kinexus rheometer has unprecedented dual-action capabilities for both shear and vertical (or axial) testing.
