Lab Series


Simple. Solid. Sturdy. Traditionally unfamiliar terms in the lab. But we believe they shouldn’t be.
The Hydramotion Lab Series brings you all these, and more. Your lab will never be the same.

Speed, durability and incredible sensitivity are signature features of the unique range.
Whether it is a reaction vessel, a test-tube, or measuring on the go, these are the perfect tools for precision viscosity in all settings from research, to scale up, to production.

So its out with the old, and in with the new.


The Reactavisc detects molecular changes during crystallisation and polymerisation as the reaction happens, providing you actionable insight of critical process parameters, right in the heart of the reaction. The perfect partner for R&D, laboratory trials, scale up and production.

Reactavisc Provides Scale-Up Framework from Lab to Pilot Plant

A North American research division faced major challenges in measuring oligosaccharides during synthesis reactions. The problems stemmed from the time-consuming nature of offline HPLC molecular weight measurements, which took 4 hours to yield results. This was hindering the scale-up process from laboratory to pilot phase…
