Application Note: The Application of Mesh Material Pockets in DMA Analysis of Lactose Powders
17 September 2012

In this application note a direct comparison between Dutch Twilled and solid material pockets for the analysis of crystalline and amorphous forms of lactose, using the PerkinElmer DMA 8000 is presented. The pores in the Dutch Twilled mesh pocket allow the water to freely evaporate from the lactose enabling more reliable result than the solid steel material pocket to be obtained.
