Differential Scanning Calorimetry measures the amount of energy (heat) absorbed or released by a material as it is heated, cooled or held at a constant temperature. Solid and liquid samples can be analyzed with sample sizes between 1.0 mg. up to gram quantities. Used alone or in conjunction with other techniques, DSC can be used for:
- polymorph differentiation
- eutectic purity
- kinetic studies
- thermal stability
- thermal transitions
- heat capacity
- hydrate-solvate characterization
- protein stability
- formulation stability studies
DSC analyses can be performed using RML standard parameters, or with a client’s specified parameters.
