Thermal Analysis of Medical Materials - METTLER TOLEDO

On Demand Webinar

Thermal Analysis of Medical Materials

The health care industry will continue to drive research in the field of medical materials, including the development of new materials, processing techniques and innovative product design. Thermal analysis techniques like DSC, TGA, TMA, and DMA are ideal for characterizing such materials. The most important advantage is that properties can be measured as function of temperature or time over a wide temperature range, from –150 to 1600 °C.

In this Webinar, we will show how thermal analysis is used to analyze medical materials and will present some typical examples of products measured by DSC, TGA, TMA, or DMA.



Thermal Analysis can be used for the quality control and research of medical materials. Just a small sample of a few milligrams is sufficient to measure the most important properties and characteristics of such materials, for example the glass transition, expansion coefficient, melting, crystallization, decomposition, and elasticity.

In this web-based Seminar (Webinar), we will present the main techniques of thermal analysis and present some typical applications. The Webinar covers the following topics:

  • Introduction
  • Basic properties of medical materials
  • Typical questions
  • Thermal analysis
  • Industries and applications
  • Instrumentation and applications
    - Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)
    - Thermogravimetry (TGA)
    - Thermomechanical Analysis (TMA)
    - Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA)
