Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)

DSC Stage – Modular Add-On offers a new compact alternative for conducting thermal analysis on both liquid and dry state samples, especially since the DSC stage shares the same control module and peripherals with our Lyostat5 Freeze Drying Microscope where it can be purchased as an optional add-on expanding the Lyostat5 capabilities. Furthermore, the dual pan system allows for comparison against a reference sample and maximises the thermal signal from solute-related events over the ‘noise’ resulting from the solvent and pan.

One of the most important benefits of the DSC stage is that, unlike other DSC systems, it includes the ability to be mounted on an imaging station for visual degradation analysis and TASC (Thermal Analysis by Surface Characterisation) during DSC experiments through a sapphire window. Visually observing the physical changes that the DSC trace is quantitatively reporting can be of great benefit, especially for troubleshooting. These images can be made into videos and easily, exported with a data ribbon and annotated.
