Important Factors when Buying a Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC)
| By Malvern Instruments
The physical components and features of a Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC) instrument and the technical specifications are clearly important to consider when purchasing a new system. However, written specifications can be confusing, misleading and may actually have very little bearing on the actual performance of the instrument. Specifications, on paper, do not necessarily translate into advantages or disadvantages when it comes to making measurements on your samples.

Forensic Analysis of an Artificial Sweetener Commonly Employed in Hoax Powder Attacks Using Morphologically Directed Raman Spectroscopy
| By Malvern Instruments
In the wake of the September 11th terrorist attacks, there was an influx of white powder events throughout the United States. A white powder event is when an unknown white powder is received in the post. More often than not, the attacks do not contain any toxic materials and are carried out for the sole purpose of causing terror and damaging infrastructure. Since these attacks, the FBI and US Postal Service have responded to thousands of white powder events.
