IsoStep - Overview - METTLER TOLEDO


IsoStep is a temperature-modulated DSC method that allows you to determine heat capacities and kinetic effects separately in a single DSC run. Overlapping thermal events can therefore be clearly distinguished. IsoStep provides a straightforward approach to the determination of heat capacities. The temperature program consists of a large number of short dynamic steps each of which starts and ends with an isothermal segment. The automatic analysis of isothermal signal deviations leads to the kinetic curve.
