What we Offer
We offer a rapid, high resolution Moisture Sorption Isotherm generation service, using the AquaSorp from Decagon Devices.
When water is a key ingredient, knowing your products' or ingredients' moisture sorption isotherm is the first step in developing profitable, shelf-stable prducts.
How 'Rapid' is it?
Testing itself will generally take about 24 hours and results will be sent on the day following completion of the test.
What Information Will I Get?
What is a 'Moisture Sorption Isotherm'?
A moisture sorption isotherm describes the relationship between moisture content (y-axis) and water activity (x-axis) for a given product, at a single temperature.
Reasons to Generate a Sorption Isotherm:
Are you having product shelf-life or stability problems?
Do you understand how water migrates within your product?
Do you understand how your product gains or loses water?
Do you need to determine mono-layer moisture content?
There are many situations where sorption isotherms can provide valuable information. If you are having shelf-life or product moisture related problems, then understanding the product's moisture sorption characteristics may assist in solving the problem.
