Shrinkage Temperature of Collagen

Humid storage can cause irreversible gelatinizing with leathers and parchment, the condition oft he leathers cannot be seen with the eyes.

Shrinkage temperature gives a reliable information about the condition of the leather and parchment, however expensive devices are needed: a good microscope and a Mettler Hot Stage.
 
We offer to make your measurements.
Send us 10-20 fibres of the dermis of your leather or parchment and we send you the shrinkage interval within 3 days. Price of measurement is 230 Euros.
