Differential Scanning Calorimeter
DSC-60 Plus Series

DSC-60 Plus addresses the various DSC applications.

The DSC-60 Plus is an indispensable thermal analyzer for materials characterization in R&D and quality control applications in such areas as polymers, pharmaceuticals, electronic parts, foods, etc. It offers the sensitivity and easy operation required for the development of high-performance, highly functional new materials.


1. High-Performance General-Purpose DSC

  • High sensitivity and high resolution
  • Stable baseline from ultra-low to high temperatures

The new detector in the DSC-60 Plus series and the unique furnace construction achieve a stable baseline across the entire measured temperature range (-140-600°C) as well as top-class calorimetric sensitivity for a DSC. It features a wide dynami measurement range of ±150 mW.

2. Diverse Measurements by Simple Operations

  • Cooling chamber installed as standard
  • Sample loading temperature function is convenient for sample replacement

The liquid-nitrogen cooling chamber permits easy measurements below room temperature without having to install special accessories. The sample loading temperature function enables quick sample change during sequential analysis without moisture codensation.

3. Complies with Analytical Laboratory Regulations

The DSC-60 Plus series complies with various guidelines involving analytical laboratories, such as the PIC/S GMP guidelines, and electronic record/electronic signature (ER/ES) regulations, including the US FDA 21 CFR Part11. In addition, it is compatible with other analytical instruments and connected network systems.

4. Eco-Friendly

The newly designed furnace unit reduces energy consumption by over 20 % when heating from room temperature to 300 ºC at a 20 ºC/minute heating rate (compared to previous Shimadzu instruments). When making measurements below room temperature, the liquid nitrogen consumption savings exceed 30 % (compared to previous Shimadzu instruments). The instrument footprint has also been minimized.

For automatic measurement
Autosampler Model

DSC-60A Plus

  • Autosampler is built into the main unit
  • Enables 24 automatic measurements
  • Enables automatic analysis and output after completion of measurement
  • Normal measurement can be performed during autosampler operation by interruption

For automatic cooling
Cooling Options

The DSC-60/60A (Differential Scanning Calorimeter) can use the "liquid nitrogen cooling type TAC-60L" or "electric cooling type TAC-60i" as "attachments for low-temperature (cooled) measurement".


Preparation of Sample Cell

By just replacing the attachment, various types of sample cells can be produced by the single device. Samples can be reliably produced by lowering the lever with a small force, as a result of the special press mechanism.
