"The instrument itself is quite easy to use - the STAR software has a bit of a steep learning curve at first, but it provides very high flexibility in processing and displaying data. The DSC sensors are low mass and responsive, allowing for high heating rates enabling kinetic studies of heating-rate dependent transitions. After sales application and technical support is top-notch."

"It's quick and easy to take measurements for several kinds of analytical research. It gives good structural reports fast. It gives overviews of many reactions such as melting, freezing, oxidation processes. With a liquid nitrogen cooler you can also analyse in temperature regions between -150 C to 500 C."
Thermogravimetry (TGA) is a technique that measures the change in weight of a sample as it is heated, cooled or held at constant temperature. Its main use is to characterize materials with regard to their composition. Application areas include plastics, elastomers and thermosets, mineral compounds and ceramics as well as a wide range of analyses in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
