Report this content

Today Theta Flow from Attension is released to customers in research facilities for R&D and quality control across the world. The new optical tensiometer is remarkably easy to use, brings automation to a new high, and offers improved accuracy with its high-end camera, image enhancement, and sensors.

Biolin Scientific brand Attension is known for its user-friendly optical and force tensiometers, much appreciated by the scientific community in both industry and academia. The brand also celebrated a victory in design, when Theta Flex, one of the models from the Attension range, was awarded Best of the best in Industrial Design at the Red Dot Award in 2020. The clear aesthetics and precise manner of interaction remain for the new instrument, but even more value is added to Theta Flow. Customers can enjoy three main advantages of the new premium instrument.

  • Camera autofocus, automatic surface mapping, and automatically generated results are a few of the features bringing automation to a new level for optical tensiometers, simplifying the measurements and increasing accuracy.
  • With a camera resolution at 5 MP, image enhancements with DropletPlus technology and sensors keeping track of the surrounding environment for good traceability, Theta Flow will provide highly accurate results. The reliable data, in turn, is a key component for user-independent measurements.
  • The touch display improves the user experience making measurement preparation super smooth to handle. Everything from filling the liquids to changing your sample can be done easily at the instrument in seconds.

Additionally, several smaller improvements have been made to optimize the instrument’s lifetime and usability. Just like the other instruments in the Theta family, the new instrument is also using the industry-leading software OneAttension, which combines optimal ease-of-use with a high-level of functionality.

“We are really proud of our new product. Theta Flow is the perfect choice for researchers looking for a premium option. It will be especially suitable in quality control with many samples, in demanding surface research, and in large labs with plenty of users where there is a need to reduce the risk of user-dependent results. High accuracy and high automation are key components for Theta Flow. The result is really precise measurements and reliable results.”, says Global Product Manager for Attension Jyrki Korpela.

Theta Flow will be available for orders from March 29th through Biolin Scientific and local distribution partners.
