Microcal VP-DSC


Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is used to measure the thermal transitions of DNA, proteins or peptides as they are heated or cooled. This is achieved by comparing the amount of energy required to heat a sample to the amount of energy required to heat the buffer of that sample (Δcp) at constant pressure.
