1. High-Performance General-Purpose DSC
High sensitivity and high resolution
Stable baseline from ultra-low to high temperatures
The new detector in the DSC-60 Plus series and the unique furnace construction achieve a stable baseline across the entire measured temperature range (-140-600°C) as well as top-class calorimetric sensitivity for a DSC. It features a wide dynami measurement range of ±150 mW.
2. Diverse Measurements by Simple Operations
Cooling chamber installed as standard
Sample loading temperature function is convenient for sample replacement
The liquid-nitrogen cooling chamber permits easy measurements below room temperature without having to install special accessories. The sample loading temperature function enables quick sample change during sequential analysis without moisture codensation.
3. Complies with Analytical Laboratory Regulations
The DSC-60 Plus series complies with various guidelines involving analytical laboratories, such as the PIC/S GMP guidelines, and electronic record/electronic signature (ER/ES) regulations, including the US FDA 21 CFR Part11. In addition, it is compatible with other analytical instruments and connected network systems.
The new detector and new unique furnace construction achieves a noise level of less than 0.5μW, ensuring a stable baseline.
Rubber and Plastic Materials
In the analysis of rubbers and plastics, which are used in various industries, the DSC-60 Plus enables the detection of a complicated calorimetric change from low to high temperatures and the evaluation of the features of these materials.
Battery and Electronic Parts
The calorimetric measurement range has been extended three times (compared to previous Shimadzu instruments) to ±150 mW. It offers an adequate dynamic range for the assessment of he reactivity of chemical substances with comparatively large calorimetric change and for the measurement of the hardening reactions of adhesives.
The DSC-60 Plus series features a cooling chamber as standard. Measurements below room temperature can be performed by pouring liquid nitrogen through the inlet into the chamber to lower the temperature. This is extremely convenient, as it eliminates the need to install special accessories. It achieves 10 ºC/minute performance at −100 ºC, which is adequate for measurements during a controlled cooling process.
While running a series of analyses below room temperature, the furnace temperature has to be returned to near room temperature during sample replacement. The sample loading temperature function heats only the region around the sample when the sample is replaced, so that measurement can be rapidly resumed without moisture condensation.
The newly designed furnace unit reduces energy consumption by over 20 % when heating from room temperature to 300 ºC at a 20 ºC/minute heating rate (compared to previous Shimadzu instruments). When making measurements below room temperature, the liquid nitrogen consumption savings exceed 30 % (compared to previous Shimadzu instruments). The instrument footprint has also been minimized.
Thermal analyzers are important analytical instruments for drug development and quality control. This field demands rapid compliance with the PIC/S GMP guidelines. And record/electronic signature (ER/ES) regulations and policies,including the US FDA 21 CFR Part11.
Shimadzu thermal analyzers can work collaboratively with various analytical instruments to ensure a laboratory's compliance with the regulations.
