    aW-meter for all kinds of samples, regardless of being liquid, solid or jelly-like. With its ergonomic design and touch-screen function, water activity measurements are more simple than ever before.

    The partial temperature-regulation and the integrated sample surface temperature measurement allow precise and reproducible measurement values. Additionally, different measuring modes are available.

    Key Features:

    • Fast mode for a measurement in max. 10 minute
    • Partially thermostatic chamber
    • SD-card for a simple data management
    • Reusable SAL-T verification standards

    Water activity meter with portability needed? Then our LabSwift is the perfect device for you. With a rechargeable battery as an option, this meter can be placed and used anywhere.

    It is particularly useful for products in powder form or dried fruits with low to medium aw-values, because this meter does not exhibit a temperature stabilisation in its measuring chamber.

    Key Features:

    • Optional use of a rechargeable battery for portability
    • SD-card for simple data management
    • Reusable SAL-T verification standards
    • Fast meter for medium aw value range

    Do you wish to measure water activity without requiring a lot of resources? Or do you not require a meticulously precise or reproducible aw-value identification for your product? If yes, the LabStart is the ideal water activity meter for you.

    This meter is developed for users new to water activity measurements and of course also uses the proven Novasina technology, our resistive-electrolytical sensor.

    Key Features:

    • Reusable SAL-T verification standards
    • Simple starter-level water activity meter
    • Stable base-plate to prevent tipping
    • User-friendly design

    To create a reproducible measurement of a sample, a large sample quantity is sometimes required. Thanks to the spacious sample chamber of the ClimMate Set, it is possible to easily measure large sample quantities or big sample pieces.

    However, this chamber does not have temperature control and the meter does not have humidity equilibrium detection. This battery-powered set is ideal for initial measurement value indications and for portable applications.

    Water Activity: What is it about?

    Is my food production at risk of mold or listeria growth? Will my soft gelatin capsules dry out and deteriorate while in storage? Can I extend the shelf life of my products with confidence?

    Many question pop-up around the stability of food, cosmetics, pharmaceutical products and pet food. More often than not it is the available water (water activity) that is influential.
