Welcome to stablemicrosystems.com – home of the world leaders in the measurement of texture and physical properties.


Established in 1987, Stable Micro Systems designs, manufactures and markets texture analysis equipment now standard within the food industry, and growing rapidly in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and other manufacturing industries.

A dedicated team of designers and engineers provide customers with outstanding expertise and technical support, including an applications laboratory in which customers' test protocols can be optimised.

Key instruments in Stable Micro Systems' portfolio include the TA.XTplus and the TA.HDplus texture analyzers which can be used to test ingredients, semi-finished and finished products. Textural properties such as hardness, stickiness, brittleness and extensibility can be assessed and quantified by attaching different probes and fixtures to the instrument, either from an existing range or according to a customer bespoke requirement. Test results are analysed and data presented as user-friendly charts, reports, or graphs by Stable Micro Systems' specialist Exponent software.

Our product range also includes the Powder Flow Analyzer and the VolScan Profiler for accurately measuring the volume of bakery products.
