microSC-4c (microcalorimetry)

The highlights

Microcalorimetry (- 20°C to 170°C)

Highlights include:

  • Wide temperature range covering -20 to 170°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.
  • 2-cell version is also available under request (microSC-2c)

With its temperature range (-20 to 170°C) the microSC-4c microcalorimeter can meet a wide range of application, especially when dealing with :


  • crystallization of amorphous phase of excipients,
  • purity, polymorphism of API ( the sensitivity improves the lower % of detectable amorphous phase)
  • API-excipient compatibility

Energetic Materials: Thermal activity of propellants


  • degree of gelatinization of cereals, starch,  polysaccharides
  • thermal denaturation of proteins
  • Phase transition
