About DSC (Differential Scanning Calorimetry)
Welcome to the world of thermal analysis at HTL Biosolutions. Our Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) services are finely tuned to meet the specific requirements of biotechnology, offering precise insights into thermal properties, phase transitions, and material behavior.
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is a powerful analytical technique used to study the thermal properties of materials. Here's how DSC works:
Sample and Reference: DSC analysis begins with two sample cells. One is filled with the sample you want to analyze, while the other serves as a reference.
Heating and Cooling: Both sample cells are subjected to the same controlled temperature program. This typically involves heating the sample cell at a constant rate.
Temperature Difference: As the temperature increases, the sample experiences changes in its thermal properties. These changes can include phase transitions (melting, crystallization), protein unfolding, and more.
Heat Flow: The DSC instrument measures the heat flow into or out of the sample cell relative to the reference cell. The difference in heat flow between the sample and reference is recorded on a graph.
Thermal Insights: The resulting DSC curve displays peaks, revealing crucial information about your sample's thermal behavior. This includes obtaining critical data points such as the Glass Transition Temperature (Tg) and Melting Temperature (Tm).
Applications of DSC
DSC's versatility makes it invaluable in biotechnology, including:
Thermal Stability: Assessing the Tg or Tm of biomolecules.
Quality Control: Ensuring product quality and consistency, especially in pharmaceuticals and biopharmaceuticals.
Biopolymer Characterization: Studying the behavior of biopolymers under various conditions.
Material Analysis: Analyzing a wide range of materials to understand their thermal characteristics.
