Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)

DSC is a technique used for investigating calorimetric events in a sample, such as crystallization/melting, polymerization, or glass transitions. The device alters the temperature of a sample and measures the corresponding heat flow of that temperature alteration. 

At our division we have a Q1000 DSC instrument from TA instruments. This machine uses liquid nitrogen as a cooling medium, and can operate in a temperature range of -180°C to 550°C.​
