Calorimeters

VP-DSC

type (brand): Microcal VP-DSC (Malvernl)

Description: Sample volume 0.51 ml. Scanning range -30 - 130 ˚C. Lowest scan speed 0.001 ˚C/h

Use for: With DSC the difference in heat response between a sample and a reference on temperature changes is monitored. You can think of processes like melting, denaturation of proteins, and more.

VP-ICT

type (brand): MicroCal VP-ITC (Malvern)

Description: Sample Volume 1.3 ml, injector volume 0.25 ml operating range 2 - 80 ˚C

Use for: With ITC the difference in heat response between a sample and a reference due to addition of a component to the sample at a constant temperature is monitored. You can think of processes like dilution, neutralisation, binding, and more. The MicroCal VP-ITC is only capable of measuring liquids (solutions) with a sample volume of about 1.3 mL.
