The module looks DSC and its application in measurement of thermal transitions in samples. It also provides a visual guide to the operation of a typical differential scanning calorimeter.
|Who is it for||
Personnel in production, analytical quality, including quality control and quality assurance who use this technique should complete this module.
|Why it matters||
DSC is used to evaluate the stability of protein folding and unfolding events, to characterize products, determine crystallization and melting temperatures, and phase transition energies of inorganic compounds. It provides information on sample purity, properties, and composition. It can also determine presence of polymorphs and exothermic decomposition of the sample. Understanding DSC is crucial for analysis to complete their tests and experiments correctly.
