Differential Scanning Calorimeters (DSC)

Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is a method used to define the stability of a protein or other biomolecule by calculating the heat change associated with the denaturation of a sample heating at a steady rate.

These devices are used to gauge melting temperature, reaction energy, crystalline phase transition temperature, precipitation temperature, denaturisation temperatures, oxidation induction times, heat capacity and a number of other thermal properties.

Plastics, adhesives, metal alloys, pharmaceuticals, waxes, foods, lubricants, catalysts, fertilizers, and sealants can all be tested with differential scanning calorimeters. Only non-corrosive specimens can be tested in this sensitive instrument.
