Introduction page of manufacturing equipment and evaluation equipment
|AGI Homo-Mixer||This compact vacuum emulsifying/dispersing machine is suitable for formulation studies of cosmetics, and can emulsify and knead creams and ointments without entrapping air bubbles.
The speed and mixing time of the homo-mixer can also be controlled, enabling studies that are closer to on-site production.
|Paddle Mixer||Agitator used on a tabletop.
It adjusts raw materials to be mixed with a homo mixer and prepares samples that can be made at room temperature and with low agitation.
|Type B viscometer||Single cylindrical rotational viscometer (Brookfield viscometer) described in General Test Method 2.53 Viscosity Measurement in the 18th revision of the Japanese Pharmacopoeia.
This is a widely used viscometer to measure "approximate viscosity".
|Type E viscometer||Cone-plate rotational viscometer (cone-plate viscometer) described in the General Test Method 2.53 "Viscosity Measurement Methods" of the 18th revision of the Japanese Pharmacopoeia.
This device is capable of rheological (flow) measurement.
|Microscope||This microscope can observe up to 2000x. Check the emulsification state of cream and crystals of Petrolatum.
An "ultra-compact high-performance zoom lens" that allows observation of skin surfaces can also be attached.
|Gas chromatography||Analyze the ingredients by column. It measures which ingredients are present and in what proportions.|
|Spread meter||It is a spread meter (also called a parallel plate viscometer) described in the General Test Method 6.16, Fluidometric Determination of Semi-solid Preparations of the Japanese Pharmacopoeia 18th Revision.
It quantifies the "extensibility" of a sample.
|Penetrometer||This is a penetrometer (tightness meter) described in the General Test Method 6.16 "Fluidometric assay for semi-solid preparations" of the 18th revision of the Japanese Pharmacopoeia.
It quantifies the "hardness/softness" of a sample.
|Conical wire mesh||This test measures the bleeding phenomenon of semi-solid formulations (separation of liquid components).|
