Kinexus is the next generation rotational rheometer platform that’s been developed from extensive market feedback, integrating innovative instrument design with a revolutionary software interface, to deliver a solution that will exceed your rheological expectations.

A modular rheometer with true ‘plug and play’ functionality for all measuring systems and environmental control units, Kinexus enables pioneering Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) driven rheological testing. 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.

Software

rSpace software is driven by ‘sequences’ – which consist of fundamental rheological actions (or test building blocks) that can be linked together with other test actions, such as user feedback and choices, calculate values, loops and triggers, in order to build ‘intelligent’ tests.
‘run’ only sequences: a user operates under SOP-type conditions with defined test instructions and feedback
‘edit’ sequences: researchers have the full design capabilities at their fingertips
‘Drag and drop’ actions and ‘Import subsequence’ functionality
Include user choices, calculate values, loops, triggers
Include specific user inputs and instructions as required
Build-it data evaluation and expert advice.
Built-in tools for method development
