Uncover Scale-up and Safety Issues
OptiMax™ HFCal reproducibly delivers information for characterizing and scaling up processes to ensure they are safe at scale.
Understand Your Process Parameters
Heat data obtained under both isothermal and non-isothermal conditions enables the characterization of process parameters under process-like conditions.
Simple and Accurate Calorimetry
The Plug & Play calorimetry module enables determination of heat information accurately and precisely.

Faster Process Development
Characterize reaction parameters and collect heat information at the same time. The combination of heat information with real-time analytical data provides researchers with the relevant information for safe scale-up processes.
Precise Heating and Cooling
Powerful heating and rapid cooling combined with the unique control algorithm ensure that the temperature is maintained accurately and precisely between -40°C and 180°C, even if sudden exothermic reactions occur.
Accurate Data Analysis
With a single click, the iControl software automatically calculates and reports heat transfer data, the specific heat of the reaction mass, heat flow and reaction enthalpies.
