Differential Scanning Calorimeter Updated

The automated VP Cap-DSC has undergone a complete overhaul at the factory.

The cell has a new peltier heater and has been recalibrated and the parameters have been updated and reinstalled. The equipment is running as good as new and has seen increased usage. DSC measures the enthalpy (ΔH) of unfolding due to heat denaturation as well as the transition midpoint (Tm) when 50% of the biomolecules are unfolded.
