DSC for Pharmaceuticals and Cosmetics - DSC 204 F1 Nevio

Precise and Reliable DSC Results for Pharmaceuticals, Foods and Cosmetics by means of the DSC 204 F1 Nevio, the premium differential scanning calorimeter for research and development, material characterization and contract testing.

The instrument serves for the investigation of:

  • Melting temperatures and enthalpies of fusion
  • Polymorphism (ability of a solid substance to exist in multiple forms or crystal structures)
  • Crystallization temperatures and enthalpies
  • Glass transitions (characteristic for amorphous areas or amorphous substances)
  • Solid-solid interactions (e.g., between ingredients in a physical mixture)
  • Phase diagrams
  • Eutectic purity
  • Solid-fat content
  • Reaction temperatures and enthalpies
  • Specific heat capacity (cp)
  • Cross-linking reactions (curing)
  • Oxidation-induction time and temperature (isothermal and dynamic OIT)
