Differential scanning calorimeter (DSC)

A VP-ITC Differential Scanning Microcalorimeter with a Pressure Perturbation Calorimetry accessory from MicroCal (GE Healthcare) was purchased in 2010. This is a sensitive microcalorimeter for samples in solution. The instrument has an  active cell volume of ca 0.5 ml, and  it operates for temperatures between  –10ºC to +130ºC. The cells consists of non-reactive Tantalum 61™ for excellent chemical resistance, and they are fixed-in-place  for reproducible ultrasensitive performance with low maintenance. The systems uses a Peltier element for precise temperature control. It allows for user selectable temperature scan rates (0ºC to 90ºC per hour upscans), enabling for studies of fast or slow transition processes.
