- Differential Scanning Calorimetry -

The Perkin-Elmer Pyris-1 Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC) measures the amount of energy (heat) absorbed or released by a sample as it is heated, cooled, or held at a constant temperature.  Typical applications include determination of melting point temperature and the heat of melting; measurement of the glass transition temperature; curing and crystallization studies; and identification of phase transformations.

The temperature range of the DSC Pyris-1 is -170oC to 730oC.
