SwRI's texture analyzer is ideal for large-strain deformation tests of adhesive, food, and pharmaceutical products.
Projects in the Applied Power Division of Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) have led to the acquisition of several new technologies and new laboratory space ideal for chemical and physical analysis.
Clients are offered evaluation and analytical services on a per-sample basis, and are offered our capabilities to solve problems and develop new technologies in larger projects.
We work closely with other SwRI divisions to provide additional expertise and analytical capabilities.
SwRI's success is based on a multidisciplinary, integrated approach to problem-solving that continually produces innovations in the presence of evolving technologies and market forces.
Doing Business with SwRI
Advantages of contracting with SwRI include:
- Fast turnaround time
- Quality results at reasonable prices
- Clear, concise technical expertise

As part of a long-held tradition, patent rights arising from sponsored research at SwRI are often assigned to the client. We generally retain the rights to SwRI-funded advancements.
Chemical and Physical Analysis
The following chemical and physical analysis services are available:
Rheology helps to understand the flow behavior of complex fluids such as paint, polymers, gels, and food. Our texture analyzer is ideal for large-strain deformation tests of adhesive, food, and pharmaceutical products.
Atomic force microscopy provides nanometer-scale resolution of surfaces as well as local mechanical and electrical properties of surface features.
Our analytical chemistry equipment is available for analyzing unknown samples and performing assays.
