Today, Waters Corporation unveiled its new line of differential scanning calorimeters at the 2016 Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy (Pittcon). Additionally, the company highlighted new CORTECS® column chemistries and reported that its GlycoWorks™ RapiFluor-MS™ N-Glycan Kit has already saved biopharmaceutical laboratories industry-wide approximately 4 years of work based on sales in just its first year of availability.
The new line of Differential Scanning Calorimeters, the Discovery DSC 2500, DSC 250, and DSC 25 feature enhanced sensing technologies resulting in unprecedented performance in baseline flatness, sensitivity, resolution, and reproducibility. The Discovery DSC measures the change in energy in a sample as the temperature is raised or lowered. It is used for a wide range of applications, including material science, pharmaceuticals, chemistry and studies of biomaterials. It excels in both research environments and production control processes.
