Single Cell Calorimetry optimised for imaging and spectroscopy, temperature control from < -195°C to 600°C



Linkam’s optical DSC600 is a single cell calorimetry system which overcomes the
problem of baseline drift due to different heat flows into the sample and
reference crucible.

Key features include:

  • Smaller furnace results in faster response time
  • Compact size of the stage means it can be easily mounted on to FT-IR and Laser
    Raman and confocal microscopes
  • Suitable for reflected and transmitted light studies
  • Simultaneous optical and enthalpy change data
  • Heating and cooling to temperatures between < -195°C (when used with the
    LNP96 Liquid Nitrogen Pump) and 600°C can be carried out at rates of up to

The system consists of the DSC600 stage, a T96 controller and LINK software.
The optional LNP96 is required to achieve temperatures down to < -195°C.

Add TASC software to enable further thermal analysis.
