TA INSTRUMENTS: Differential Scanning Calorimeters
TA Instruments recently introduced a new line of differential scanning calorimeters, the Discovery DSC2500, DSC250 and DSC25. These instruments reportedly feature enhanced sensing technologies resulting in unprecedented performance in baseline flatness, sensitivity, resolution, and reproducibility.
At the core of every new Discovery DSC is the TA Fusion Cell™, which incorporates design concepts that “fuse” together features of the Q-Series, first-generation Discovery DSC, and patented Tzero® technology, as well as new proprietary manufacturing processes. Additionally, an app-style user interface is standard with each new model and, combined withpowerful new TRIOS software that includes automated calibration and verification routines, works to improve laboratory work flows and productivity.
The Discovery DSC measures the change in energy in a sample as the temperature is raised or lowered. It is used for a wide range of applications, including material science, pharmaceuticals, chemistry and studies of biomaterials. It excels in both research environments and production control processes.
“DSC is the anchor of a thermal analysis laboratory, and is TA’s best-selling product,” said Terry Kelly, president. “In terms of performance and ease-of-use the new Discovery Series DSC has jumped so far ahead of competitive units, scientists will easily see the benefits of upgrading to our powerful new systems.”
The DSC2500 comes standard with all options, including an all-new linear autosampler that allows for flexibility in assigning sample and reference pans to any combination of the available 54 positions, and TA’s exclusive T4P heat flow technology. Reportedly, it is the only DSC on the market capable of making and storing heat capacity measurements in a single run. The DSC250 is a flexible and configurable research-grade DSC that includes Tzero technology. It is ideal for research, teaching, and quality control laboratories that require a rugged, reliable, basic DSC.
