Senin, A.A., Potekhin, S.A., Tiktopulo, E.I. et al. Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry (2000) 62: 153. doi:10.1023/A:1010171013669
The paper describes the design and the principle of operation of the differential scanning microcalorimeter SCAL-1. This instrument serves to measure thermal parameters of protein or biopolymer solutions of low concentration (from0.1 mg ml−1) in the temperature range from −10 to 130°C using different rates. A distinctive feature of the microcalorimeter is that its calorimetric cell is made of glass, it is highly sensitive and measuring results can be easily and reliably reproduced.
