Materials Characterization

This class describes equipment that provides generic techniques to characterize samples, materials or specimens. The defining characteristic is that these items of equipment could equally be applied to a portion of the sample or specimen as to the whole.

The CombiFlash® Rf 200 has built-in solvent and waste management that prevent columns from drying, and messy waste overfills. An automated valve lets you load samples and walk away - and it's self-cleaning to wash away materials that can contaminate the next run. The CombiFlash® Rf 200 improves productivity whether you separate synthetic compounds, natural products, peptides, polymers, or other chemical separations.

Differential scanning calorimetry or DSC is a thermoanalytical technique in which the difference in the amount of heat required to increase the temperature of a sample and reference is measured as a function of temperature. Both the sample and reference are maintained at nearly the same temperature throughout the experiment.
