Thermal analysis offers an accurate and cost-effective way to test materials that will be used for medical purposes. In a new live presentation, METTLER TOLEDO experts will review the benefits of various thermal analysis methods commonly used to test the properties, characteristics, and safety of potentially lifesaving new materials.
METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to present “Thermal Analysis of Medical Materials” on October 27th, 2016.
The English-language webinar is part of the leading lab technology company’s year-long thermal analysis series. Covering the testing of medical materials across common thermal analysis methods, the presentation will repeat live three times to allow participation from around the globe.

The health care industry continues to drive research in the field of medical materials. This includes the development of new materials used in innovative products to assist in patient care. However, with each new material comes a need to assure its safety and performance. Thermal analysis offers an ideal method to do so.
Using thermal analysis, materials properties can be measured as function of temperature or time over a temperature range from –150 to 1600 °C. Additionally, only a few milligrams of a substance is generally sufficient to measure properties that contribute to performance and longevity, such as glass transition point, expansion coefficient, melting point, and elasticity. This makes thermal analysis cost-effective in an industry where maintaining margin is critical.
The presentation will cover basic properties of medical materials, the primary methods of thermal analysis applied (DSC, TGA, TMA and DMA), and typical representative applications. A Q&A after the presentation will allow you to obtain answers to specific application questions.
