The HS82 and HS84 hot-stage microscopy systems, from METTLER TOLEDO, can be used to analyze several types of thermal transitions while the sample is heated or cooled. The core component of the hot-stage microscopy systems is the furnace, with a heating element provided below and above the sample to ensure excellent temperature consistency in the sample, and to guarantee reliable results.
The powerful hot-stage systems allows the users to characterize liquid crystal compounds, conduct polymorphism and solvate studies, and analyze the crystallization and melting of polymers. The hot-stages can also be used for sample evaluations under IR and RAMAN spectrometers, microscopes, and in X-ray beamlines.
The main features of the hot stage microscopy systems are as follows:
- Allows sample to be observed while it is cooled or heated, providing a better understanding of the physics of a transition
- One Click™ technology with superior ergonomics makes the system easy to use and understand
- Real DSC (HS84) enables temperature control, observation, and measuring of a DSC curve
