microSC (microcalorimetry)

The highlights

Microcalorimetry (- 40°C to 200°C)

Highlights include:

  • Wide temperature range covering -40 to 200°C
  • 2 measuring wells, featuring zero cross talk, and easily removable and reusable cells
  • High precision isothermal and scanning options are available to enable the study of both transitions and long term isothermal behaviour, such as stability and long term reactions.


2D plate-shaped or cylindrical 3D Calvet sensor?



Temperature range– 40°C to 200°C (cooling under – 30°C requires the use of an auxiliary thermostat)
Programmable temperature scanning rate (heating and cooling)From 0.001 to 1.2 °C.min-1
RMS noise0.2 µW typical
Measurement Cells2 X 1ml – Made of Hastelloy C – removable no signal cross contamination between cells (up to 10mW)
Weight37.4 kg (82.5 lbs)
Dimensions40 / 53 / 58 cm (15.7 / 20.9 / 22.8 in)
Power requirement230v – 50/60 Hz

With its temperature range (-40 to 200°C) the µSC can meet a wide range of application, especially when dealing with : Pharmaceuticals: – crystallization of amorphous phase of excipients, – purity, polymorphism of API ( the sensitivity improves the lower % of detectable amorphous phase) Energetic Materials: Thermal activity of propellants Food: – degree of gelatinization of cereals, starch,  polysaccharides – thermal denaturation of proteins – oxygen induction times of lipids – Maillard reaction on polysaccharides, proteins interactions – Phase transition
