Description

The VP-DSC is the most sensitive, easy to use differential scanning calorimeter to study samples in solution. Providing fast, accurate transition midpoint (Tm) determination, the VP-DSC has revolutionized the study of liquid biopharmaceutical formulations by reducing the time and cost of stability testing. In addition, a complete thermodynamic profile is generated to understand the factors that affect conformation and stability. The VP-DSC is controlled by an intelligent user interface (VPViewer™ software) and data analysis is performed with Origin®, a market-leading data analysis package.
