Differential scanning calorimeters (DSCs) are standard instruments used in both materials research and development and quality control laboratories. Demand for high-quality DSC data continues to increase rapidly throughout many industries. The development of new materials typically requires extensive testing with the objective of understanding the material structure-property relationship and its dependence on material formulations or processing conditions to help produce better, more successful products. Traditional DSCs are limited to analyzing a single sample during an experiment which may, depending upon the method, extend from several minutes to many hours. Temperature modulating DSC (MDSC®) experiments, a unique TA Instruments invention which can be used to determine material properties such as heat capacity or explore material stability and compatibility, typically take hours to achieve a result. Innovations that increase productivity and improve the efficiency of testing have the potential to impact important metrics such as time to market or responsiveness to customers. Such advancements have the potential to directly impact materials research success.
Join TA Instruments as we share our newest addition to the Discovery DSC suite, the Discovery X3 DSC; a revolutionary multi-sample DSC that delivers industry-leading performance for up to three samples simultaneously. The new X3 DSC will not only save valuable research time and lab space by consolidating three instruments and three tests into a single operation, it will open up possibilities in DSC testing that a single cell DSC simply can’t match. Come discover how the enhanced Tzero™ heat flow technology of the X3 will guarantee temperature and enthalpy accuracy with results collected three times faster.
