Discovery DSC line of differential scanning calorimeters from TA Instruments feature enhanced sensing technologies.

A line of differential scanning calorimeters from TA Instruments-the Discovery DSC2500, DSC250, and DSC25-feature enhanced sensing technologies for improved performance in baseline flatness, sensitivity, resolution, and reproducibility, the company reports.

The instruments feature the TA Fusion Cell, which incorporates design concepts from the Q-Series and first generation Discovery DSC, patented Tzero technology, and new proprietary manufacturing processes. Other features include a standard app-style user interface, TRIOS software, and automated calibration and verification routines 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 range of applications, including pharmaceuticals, chemistry, and studies of biomaterials in research environments and production control processes.

The DSC2500 comes standard with all options, including a linear autosampler that allows for assigning sample and reference pans to any combination of the available 54 positions. The T4P heat flow technology is capable of making and storing heat capacity measurements in a single run.

The DSC250 is a research-grade DSC that includes Tzero technology. The DSC25 is a general purpose DSC for research, teaching, and quality control laboratories.
