TGA 5500

The TGA 5500 is designed for the researcher that requires the highest level of performance and features in one package. Built to maximize temperature control and minimize drift, the TGA 5500 has less drift than any competitive TGA – even after they use post-test data manipulation! The TA patented IR furnace delivers the fastest heating and cooling rates available. The all new autosampler makes high productivity standard.

TGA 550

The TGA 550 will not only outperform competitive top tier systems, but will also give users the flexibility to add advanced features like Hi-Res TGA, MTGA, DTA signal, and our new 25-position autosampler. The performance, flexibility, and ease-of-use, make this an excellent TGA for research and multi-user laboratories where a wide variety of TGA experiments are conducted, and where future expansion of analytical work is anticipated.

Details

TGA 55

The TGA 55 is specifically designed for those that want rugged, reliable, and cost-effective TGA, and are not willing to accept poor data. Utilizing TA’s proprietary Tru-Mass™ Balance as the core of the system, the TGA 55 will outperform competitive research-grade models. Its sensitivity, accuracy and ease-of-use make this TGA an ideal instrument for basic research, teaching or industrial labs that need quality results.

Testing to Improve the Durability of Artificial Heart Valves

Polymer leaflet heart valves can fail in long-term use due to tearing and calcification caused by high dynamic tensile and bending stresses on the material and oxidative reactions with blood. It was postulated that synthetic valve leaflets that mimic the natural valve leaflet structure fabricated from fiber-reinforced composite material will minimize leaflet stresses and decrease tears and perforations.
