M-560/ M-565 – Melt Flow Indexer

Easy and fast determination

Achieve easy and fast determination of melting and boiling points for professional quality control with the Melting Point system. Melting Point readily fits in your lab to offer highest accuracy and full compliance with all international standards.

  • Compliance: USP, JP, Ph. EU
  • Positions: 3 samples
  • Temperature range: 10 to 400 °C


With Melting Point, benefit from easy and fast determination of melting point, boiling point or slip melting point of nearly any type of sample. Double-check challenging samples by comparing manual and automated measurements for an extra level of accuracy. Observe and replay the phase transition using colour display and video recording for comprehensive data analysis. Manage methods and results even easier by using optional PC software.


The Melting Point system delivers highly accurate temperature setting and measurements. Easily keep your instrument accurate by using the intuitive menu-guided calibration. Confidently verify the calibration against certified standard compounds.


Melting Point is fully compliant with Pharmacopoeia methods (European, USP, Japanese). Certify your calibrations with comprehensive IQ/OQ procedures and conveniently use verification compounds for GLP/GMP laboratories.

Video Recording

On a colour display, comfortably and continuously observe the phase transition in a 6-fold magnification video recording of the metling or boiling process.

Video Movie

View results after measurement easily with a video movie of every determination. Make good use of your time thanks to variable speed from single picture slow motion to fast motion up to 100x to analyze your samples efficiently and as needed.

Sample Determination

Determine three different samples simulatenously for extra time-savings. Conveniently watch the samples on the display panel through a 2.5 magnifying glass for precise determination of melting and boiling poins. Thanks to full visibility, you can easily and accurately detect the start and completion of melting. Simply press a button to safely store the determined values. Save even more time thanks to a smartly designed heating block that allows faster cooling times and a higher throughput per hour.

Quick and accurate results for melting and boiling point determination

For over 60 years BUCHI has been setting the standards for melting point determination. The easily performed method of physical analysis is used to find out the identity, the purity, and the thermal stability of a material. BUCHI melting point solutions allow the determine compounds at highest accuracies, reproducibility and compliance to all norms and standards.


Verification of chemical compounds. Analysis of new compounds after synthesis.


Analysis of raw products. Examination of the end products in a production process. Observation of the thermal stability of products.


Determination of the melting properties and the quality of raw materials. Description the quality of fats by means of slip melting point.


Verification of the identity of precursor materials. Definition of the melting point of new APIs. Indications about the purity of a material.
