Product Intelligence: Differential Scanning Calorimetry—A Fundamental Thermal Analysis Tool

Differential scanning calorimeters (DSCs) are valuable tools that are used to determine the heat capacity and thermodynamic transition of a wide variety of samples. DSCs are employed in many areas, including the pharmaceutical industry, and the cosmetics, plastics, and food industries. Before selecting a differential scanning calorimeter, some important factors should be considered, such as whether a high-temperature DSC is required, or if a mechanical cooling system is warranted. Other options include a photo DSC accessory, a range of sample pans and crucibles, and high-pressure DSCs.
