In differential Scanning Calorimetry, the heat required to increase the temperature of a sample, relative to a reference, is measured as a function of temperature. This allows the determination of the sample heat capacity and the detection of phase transitions in the sample.
Differential scanning calorimeter DSC1 from MettlerToledo equipped with an intracooler TC100 and HSS8 sensor. Temperature range: -90 to +550 °C. The calorimeter can be used to study solid, soft and liquid substances. Typical sample masses are 2-10 mg. The DSC can be run in modulation regime to resolve reversing and non-reversing heat effects.
