Symyx Rapid GPCTM is a high throughput method for characterizing polymer molecular weight and molecular weight distribution. This system includes a sample preparation system that is used to dilute the polymer samples and inject the samples into the GPC system. The sample preparation system has heated liquid dispensing pipettes for handling viscous polymers. The GPC system uses high-speed columns and an evaporative light scattering detector. Samples can be analyzed in as little as 10 minutes.

The MicroCal VP-ITC (Isothermal Titration Calorimeter) unit directly measures heat, evolved or absorbed in liquid samples as a result of mixing precise amounts of reactants. A spinning syringe is utilized for injecting and mixing of reactants. Spin rates are user selectable; the usual range is 0 to 1000 rpm. The normal temperature operating range is 2°C to 80°C. Wetted cell surfaces are Hastelloy, which are resistant to most solutions; however, strong acids should be avoided.

The triaxial cell is constructed of stainless steel for soil sampling. The standard unit features a see-through Plexiglas external cell wall. The advantages of the external cell wall are that after the specimen is completely ready for a test, the cell wall is lowered over the cell and fastened into place with a minimum of disturbance to the test sample. All the standard triaxial cells can accommodate smaller diameter specimens using optional platens. These triaxial cells accept specimens with a length of 2 to 2.5 times the diameter.  Max specimen diameter is 150mm.
