Columbus, OH (PRWEB) October 12, 2007
METTLER TOLEDO, the Technology Leader in Thermal Analysis, is excited to announce the introduction of its new Thermal Analysis Excellence line. The Thermal Analysis Excellence line of products is currently made up of two modular systems, a combined Thermogravimetric Analysis and Differential Scanning Calorimeter System (TGA/DSC 1), the new DSC 1 system and updated STARe Thermal Analysis software. METTLER TOLEDO offers the best instrument signals from basic models up to our fully loaded configurations. This is only possible with our versatile, customizable and upgradeable instrument platform. Commitment to innovation of new sensor technology accelerates users analysis power.
TGA with DSC Capability Increases Analysis Throughput
Get more information out of a single measurement with combined TGA/DSC heat flow measurements. The TGA/DSC cuts analysis time by 50% and increases productivity enormously. The innovative sample temperature sensor is directly attached to the weighing arm and detects temperature deviations of +/- 0.25 K from ambient temperature to 1600°C. The color touchscreen terminal allows visual contact with the instrument, even at a distance and indicates the status of the measurement. The display can be changed to touch-free operation by actuating the SmartSens infrared sensors.
DSC Offers Unsurpassed Sensitivity and Outstanding Resolution
The new DSC 1 with unmatched performance and perfect ergonomics dramatically reduces analysis time. High sensitivity, excellent temperature resolution, perfectly flat baseline, and a robust design enable users to achieve performance characteristics unattainable with conventional metal sensors.
The highest available sensitivity in DSC instrumentation means users will be able to detect possibly unknown transitions which increases product safety. The amazing resolution of the DSC 1 separates close-lying effects at higher heating rates up to 300°C/min resulting in drastically reduced analysis times. When the touch-free SmartSens infrared sensors are activated, users can open and close the furnace without touching any part of the instrument or disrupting a measurement. This saves time and prevents possible contamination, which is a major step to improving operator and process security.
Thermal Analysis Excellence Software Improves Productivity
The new Thermal Analysis Excellence software includes an optional interface to integrate the STARe system into a laboratory management information system (LIMS). With any type of analysis that has to be performed in any sequence, the combination of the Swiss Quality sample robot solution and the state-of-the-art integration into a LIMS is a major step towards increased productivity, workflow and product safety. Measurements can be prepared in the LIMS and sent to the STARe software for execution. The task can also include a result check. When measurement and evaluation have been completed, the task results are sent back to the LIMS for secure storage and data archiving.
METTLER TOLEDO is a leading global supplier of precision instruments and is the world's largest manufacturer and marketer of weighing instruments for use in laboratory, industrial and food retailing applications. The Company also is a leading supplier of several related analytical and measurement technologies. METTLER TOLEDO Direct Laboratory Service supports a worldwide customer base in more than 100 countries.
