Applications Laboratory

Hiden Isochema offer a range of services including contract analysis and consultancy

Hiden Isochema have a purpose built applications laboratory and offer a range of services including contract analysis, group and bespoke training courses and consultancy.

Several sets of data measured in the Hiden Isochema applications laboratory have gone on to feature in the peer reviewed press, including in top tier journals such as Nature.

The laboratory offers our customers unrivalled application support and full access to our knowledge base and instruments. The laboratory houses a suite of instruments and is staffed by an experienced applications team of PhD scientists with a variety of backgrounds including sorption science, surface science and thermodynamics.

The experimental techniques on offer include; gas sorption, vapor sorption, thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and temperature programmed desorption (TPD).

Applications include:

•Hydration analysis
•Glass transitions
•Dynamic Vapor Sorption (DVS)
•Polymorph characterization
•Amorphous phase identification and quantification
•Hydrate and solvate analysis
•Deliquescence and hygroscopicity
•Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate (MVTR) and gas permeability of packaging materials

•Equilibrium and kinetic moisture uptake by food samples
