Osmomat 090 Membrane osmometer

The Osmomat 090 enables the measurement of the average molecular weight (Mn) of polymers that are soluble in aqueous or organic solvents within the range of 10,000 to 2,000,000 g/Mol.

The measurement is highly dependent on the membrane that is used. Gonotec offers membranes with different "cutoffs" that are made of different materials, so that a suitable configuration can be offered for most applications.

This cell unit must be operated by a Gonotec Control Unit SA or Control Unit B.

Advantages
  • high-performance measuring cell
  • short response times
  • small sample volumes
  • highest measuring resolution of 0.1 mm liquid column per digit
  • avoids "balloon effects"
  • membrane diameter of 40mm

Control Unit SA

In addition to the control-, monitoring- and measuring functions, the unit leads the user through the entire measuring procedure and the final evaluation of the data.

In the evaluation process, all measurement parameters and results are summarized and treated via a statistical calculation. The average molecular weight Mn is the result.

All parameters, the measured values, the linear regression curve and the final result are summarized on a single page for printing.

Control Unit B

The control unit B includes all control-, monitoring- and measuring functions required for determination of the molecular weight.

The measuring parameters are manually adjusted by switches on the front panel of the device. The 4-digit display alternatively shows the actual measured result (1 digit is equivalent to 1mV) at the output of the amplifier or the actual temperature of the measuring cell. A potentiometric recorder can be connected to the control unit B (recommended sensitivity 1 Volt full scale).

The calculation of the final molecular weight Mn is performed by the user (the control unit SA offers a complete evaluation with a final report).

About us

Company details

40 Years of Gonotec. 40 Years of Quality. 40 Years of Innovation.
Just like so many other success stories, ours also begins in a garage. On July 1, 1979, chemist Klaus Noack and electrical engineer Harald Göritz register their company, Gonotec, with the Berlin-West Commercial Register. A garage, a laundry room, and the back room of an annex in Berlin-Lichterfelde serve as the first production facilities. The company founders, with bell-bottoms and sideburns, are now ready to stand on their own two feet and make their dream become reality: producing laboratory devices that are reliable and always reflect the latest technology.

Too much phosphate in Lake Tegel!
But they have to wait six months for their first order. Christmas of 1979 brings with it their first contract. Noack and Göritz are charged with finding out if the phosphate levels of Lake Tegel—a source of drinking water for the west part of the city at that time—are too high. The two get to work in their garage. This is where Gonotec’s particle test device is born.

And this is the start of the success story that continues today. In May 1980 they hire their first employees and the company moves to Berlin-Schöneberg, into their first real commercial facility. With seed capital from the bank, Noack and Göritz purchase their first production machines and develop the freezing point osmometer, which they name OSMOMAT 030. They hire more employees and their customer base grows.

International, innovative, successful
Today, 40 years after its founding, Gonotec is not only an international company, but also a global leader in many areas of osmometer technology. Our products are certified to ISO 13485. Gonotec osmometers are used on all five continents and in almost every country around the world. Medical, pharmaceutical, and biotech customers appreciate the accuracy and durability of Gonotec devices.

Thanks to short innovation cycles and ongoing development, we have been fulfilling the aspirations of Gonotec’s founders for 40 years and meeting the needs of our customers by reacting quickly to changes in technology. Devices such as the OSMOMAT 3000, which was developed in 2013, set the global standards for today’s technological innovations.

“We are the osmometer people.”
This is possible because we implement processes that are optimized and streamlined, place great importance on understanding customer requirements, and support a development department that keeps pace with a market that is continuously changing. Nevertheless, we have remained true to ourselves over the decades. Our production halls still have a familial atmosphere. Our employees know each other personally and appreciate everyone’s uniqueness. It’s because of them and their commitment that we are successful. So it is no surprise that our guiding principle is “We are the osmometer people.”

Starting at Gonotec as a student, Jan Celinšek succeeded Klaus Noack in 2001 to become General Manager. His loyalty to the company and his path to advancement over the years also shape our corporate culture: flat hierarchies and fairness are part of the course, as are working together to create outstanding products and achieve corporate success.

Technology that is “Made in Berlin”
Since 2008, Gonotec’s headquarters have been located on the banks of the Spree, where the company Herlitz once produced pencils and advent calendars. Ninety percent of Gonotec’s osmometers are still produced here today. This is quality “Made in Berlin” in the truest sense of the words. The international nature of Germany’s capital city is evident in our workforce: East and West, Muslim, Christian and secular, women and men all work together to achieve a common goal. Perhaps it is precisely this diversity that makes us who we are.
