A new instrument from this company reportedly takes into account each of the steps involved in running a differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) measurement in developing a comprehensive new solution. The Polyma DSC can set a new paradigm in performance and ease of use.

“When we initiated the project for a new DSC solution, we conferred with many users and listened to their wishes in order to determine several key objectives,” said Thomas Denner, Ph.D., head of the Analyzing and Testing Business Unit at NETZSCH. “The goal was to achieve the best trade-off between sensitivity and resolution, along with great reproducibility and fast heating and cooling. Also, the system was to operate with highly user-friendly software, integrating many unique features. The result is Polyma, an instrument optimized for the polymer field and incorporating innovative ideas for sample preparation and easy-to-use, flexible software.”

The core of the DSC 214 Polyma comprises the new Arena furnace, which can provide heating and cooling rates of up to 500 K/min, the new diffusion-bonded Corona sensor, and the Concavus pan. This trio reportedly offers optimum performance with the highest reproducibility.
