Bavarian government funding supports the new chip-technology for thermal analysis

The excellent cooperation between Linseis Messgeräte GmbH and the University of Bayreuth (well known for its Polymer Research) pays off. The Bavarian Research Foundation presented a grant of € 250,000 for the next product development: Chip-DSC with thermobalance.

In recent years, the two project partners have already developed a mini version of the so-called Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC), which is used primarily in materials research. The new laboratory device has been equipped with an innovative chip technology that makes it more versatile and delivers faster measurement results. Plastic analyzes are possible in one-third of the time, as with a conventional DSC device.

The next product development is working on not only learning when a material decomposes on heating, but also how much mass the material loses.
