µSC Microcalorimetry

Microcalorimetry (- 40°C to 200°C)

HIGHTLIGHTS

  • Wide temperature range covering -40 to 200°C
  • 2 measuring wells, featuring zero cross talk, and easily removable and reusable cells
  • High precision isothermal and scanning options are available to enable the study of both transitions and long term isothermal behaviour, such as stability and long term reactions.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

  • – 40°C to 200°C (cooling under – 30°C requires the use of an auxiliary thermostat)
  • From 0.001 to 1.2 °C.min-1
  • 2 X 1ml – Made of Hastelloy C – removable no signal cross contamination between cells (up to 10mW)
  • RMS Noise 0,2 µW
  • Full autosampler option

APPLICATIONS

With its temperature range (-40 to 200°C) the µSC can meet a wide range of application, especially when dealing with :

  • Pharmaceuticals: – crystallization of amorphous phase of excipients, – purity, polymorphism of API ( the sensitivity improves the lower % of detectable amorphous phase) 
  • Energetic Materials: Thermal activity of propellants 
  • Food: – degree of gelatinization of cereals, starch,  polysaccharides – thermal denaturation of proteins – oxygen induction times of lipids – Maillard reaction on polysaccharides, proteins interactions – Phase transition
