Calibration and Adjustment in Thermal Analysis
Calibration, adjustment and the appropriate level of routine testing for thermal analysis instrumentation are critical to ensuring high-quality results and maintaining GMP and USP compliance. The presentation explains how to achieve effective calibration, including determination of measurement uncertainty.
Unique FlexCal Calibration and Adjustment in Thermal Analysis
Depending on the thermal analysis system, different parameters need to be considered for calibration (e.g. temperature, heat flow, length and force). If these are not available, STARe software's FlexCal® technology automatically estimates and applies the correct adjustment parameters to match the heating rate, purge gas and crucible type specified in the measurement method.
