Surface analysis of solids as particles, fibers and plats can be very tricky. Dynamic gas adsorption with 15+ different gas probes, also known as Inverse Gas Chromatography (IGC), delivers very detailed information about surface energies, nanoroughness, polarity, acid/base properties (Lewis) and surface heterogeneity.
Adscientis has 20 years of experience of analyzing samples by IGC with now over 800 different projects for the industry. Recently, Adscientis made a great step forward in IGC with a new automated system (neuronicIC) of high flexibility, accuracy and transparency of all process conditions overcoming thereby many shortcomings of existing instruments.
Inolytix, founded in 2014, is an enthusiastic promoter of innovative analytical techniques and IGC in particular from the beginning. Analytical challenges of the chemical and pharmaceutical industry are successfully solved especially of solid and surface properties. With respect to IGC, the focus is on the german-speaking market, i.e. Germany, Switzerland and Austria. The annual organization of the International IGC-Symposium is one of the examples of community support and expert network.
Inolytix and Adscientis start a global cooperation
Now, with the new IGC instrument, both experienced companies decided to join forces for a global collaboration. This involves common communications about the use of IGC, the new instrument properties, application notes, webinars and an extension of the IGC Symposium worldwide. “It is exciting to work so closely together and to use our mutual understanding of surface characterization on a global scale”, says Ralf Duempelmann, Managing Director and Founder of Inolytix. Eric Brendle, CEO of Adscientis adds “After six years of some cooperation with Inolytix, it is now just the right time for a closer cooperation. We share the same spirit and enthusiasm to move IGC towards the next level”.

Adscientis, Wittelsheim (France) - Adscientis, founded in year 2000, is today recognized as the most reliable IGC specialist. With over 800 customer projects, the company acquired a unique set of skills and know-how on IGC techniques for the surface characterization of powders ranging from carbon black to pharma products, fibers and flat surfaces. The art of using dynamic adsorption and 15+ gas probes is refined continuously to deliver reproducible and quantitative values of surface energy, nanoroughness, polarities, acid/base properties, surface heterogeneity, specific surface areas and even HSP values. The results address crucial challenges as quality issues, product development and application behaviors. The development of an automated and highly flexible IGC instrument is based on customer needs and a result of the long-term practical experience.
