Q1000/Q2000 Modulated Differential Scanning Calorimeter

TA Instruments’ DSC with Advanced Tzero™ technology is capable of providing information related to a material’s phase transitions with unmatched performance in baseline flatness, precision, sensitivity, and resolution. A 50-position autosampler gives the ability to schedule samples to run unaided 24 hours, 7 days a week. The system’s dual mass flow controllers ensure constant flow rates and the multiple cooling accessories give a wide testing temperature range.

Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) measures the difference in heat flow between a sample and reference as a function of temperature or time under controlled temperature conditions. As a sample undergoes a transition (melting, crystallization, etc.), heat is absorbed or emitted. This change in heat flow is then measured by the system and can be analyzed.
