HyperDSC – A Breakthrough Method for Materials Characterization


Increasing the sensitivity and throughput of Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) analysis has always been a challenge for thermal analysts in research and development. DSC analysis becomes difficult for small sample sizes, high throughput applications, materials that may experience re-crystallization during melting or that decompose immediately after melting; resulting in unexpected thermal phenomena.

HyperDSC is a DSC analysis technique by PerkinElmer with fast scanning rates that eliminates or significantly reduces such unknown thermal behavior, enabling increased sensitivity and high throughput. Accurate interpretation of results and fast scanning make HyperDSC the preferred tool of the pharmaceutical and polymer industries to reduce time-to-market for new products and increase manufacturing efficiency. Read the application note to learn more about the benefits of HyperDSC for several applications in polymers and pharmaceuticals.
