Differential Scanning Calorimeters (DSC): NEXTA DSC600 and NEXTA DSC200

DSC is used to measure heat flow for material characterization by providing thermal properties such as melting point, glass transition and crystallization. DSC instruments are used both in quality control and R&D across a wide range of industries including polymers, pharma, electronics, chemical, academia, oil and gas, food, and metals.

Our NEXTA DSC Series instruments offer world-class sensitivity and baseline reproducibility, delivering more accurate testing and the ability to evaluate even the smallest thermal events. Our innovative Real View® camera system provides real-time observation during measurement. The DSC200 offers leading technology for routine applications without limitations and ideal for a wide variety of applications. The DSC600 is purpose designed to meet the most advanced materials development and failure analysis thanks to its sensitivity and resolution, especially within applied research.

What makes our DSC instruments unique?

Real View® camera for visibly better thermal analysis

The Real View® camera system integrates seamlessly with NEXTA DSC Series to observe changes in the sample status during analysis in real-time. Images reveal changes in sample shape, size, colour, and other properties. The images can be recorded and are automatically linked to the thermal data by timestamp. You can also integrate Real View® with the Auto Sampler to monitor changes to your samples while automatically analyzing several samples at once.

Real View® Polarized Micro Sample Observation Unit for NEXTA® DSC Series

Upgrade your DSC analytical capabilities with high-resolution imaging for crystal orientation, multilayer film quality control, fish-eye contamination detection, and failure analysis. Explore sample anisotropy and crystal orientation with a 20-megapixel camera, offering 50-fold digital zoom and a pixel resolution of 1.2µm. Controlled polarization technology and dedicated image processing ensure detailed observations for precise structural analysis.
