Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), Mettler 822e

DSC analysis is used for measuring thermal transitions, such as melting point (Tm) and glass transition temperature (Tg), in a range of materials. The analysis involves a sample being heated over a set temperature range. Any energy absorbed or evolved from a sample is compensated for by adding or subtracting an equivalent amount of electrical energy to a heater located in the sample holder. This results in transitions being measured directly, providing more accurate results. The analyser is cooled using an intracooler allowing operation from -65 to 600 oC. This DSC has high sensitivity for weak transitions and is automated (robotic) providing high sample throughput and efficiency.
