STEAM ABSORPTION DVS
In the case of a dry powder absorbing water, the gravimetric sorption technique known as “dynamic vapor sorption” (DVS) assesses how quickly and how much of the solvent is absorbed by a sample. This is accomplished by altering the vapor concentration around the sample and tracking the resulting change in mass. The most popular choice is water vapor, but a variety of other options are also viable.
The DVS instrument is a completely automated device that runs under the direction of a specific PC. Setting up and conducting sorption/desorption studies on the DVS instrument is made simple and flexible by the DVS control software suite included with the instrument. Also available within Microsoft Excel is the DVS Data Analysis Suite, which offers a strong environment for quick data charting and quantitative analysis. A gravimetric technique called dynamic vapor sorption examines how quickly and how much of a solvent is absorbed by a sample, such as how much water a dry powder absorbs. This is accomplished by altering the vapor concentration around the sample and tracking the resulting change in mass.
DVS is another instrument that is frequently used in lab settings and approved by Pharmacopoeia for characterizing solid-state dosage forms in the pharmaceutical sector. Completely automated system with automatic weighing and climate adjustment based on user settings. Low-maintenance, easy-to-use software with advanced Excel output.
