The PerkinElmer DSC 8500 (Differential Scanning Calorimetry) features second-generation HyperDSC technology, which allows you to gain unlimited insight into the structure, properties and performance of your materials. And with hyper-enabled, double-furnace technology and better application capabilities, the DSC 8500 gives you higher accuracy and sensitivity than ever before.

Typical applications for the DSC 8500:

  • Polymorph characterization in pharmaceuticals
    • Measure samples without heating induced polymorph changes
  • Process studies in pharmaceuticals
    • Get a greater understanding of how the process affects the amorphous\crystalline content of the product
  • Process simulation in polymers
    • See the effects your process has on the product

Features: 

  • Double-furnace DSC
  • HyperDSC
  • Enhanced software package
  • Optional 96-position autosampler
  • Extremely fast controlled scanning rates to 750 °C/min
  • In-situ ballistic cooling to 2100 °C/min, enabling experiments that mimic real-world processes
  • Extremely fast readout rates (100 points/second) providing high data integrity
  • Proven HyperDSC superiority in:
    • Isothermal crystallization
    • Polymorph/amorphous-material studies
    • High sensitivity measurements
    • Process simulation
