MicroCal PEAQ-DSC microcalorimeters are effective and easy-to-use tools that facilitate thermal stability characterisation of proteins and other biomolecules, primarily for biopharmaceutical development and manufacturing applications.
They are used for general stability studies, for biosimilarity and batch-to-batch comparability assessment, and for the optimization of purification and manufacturing conditions. MicroCal PEAQ-DSC systems are simple to use, requiring little assay development, and no labelling or immobilisation.
There are two MicroCal PEAQ-DSC Differential Scanning Calorimetry instruments available, both of which are designed for use in the regulated biopharmaceutical environment.
The MicroCal PEAQ-DSC Automated system has an autosampler for hands-free operation, easing the workload of screening large numbers of samples.
The MicroCal PEAQDSC is a manual instrument, which offers equal performance, reproducibility and minimal sample consumption, for laboratories which need to analyse fewer samples.
Both instruments are operated by MicroCal PEAQ-DSC software, containing the following four specialist modules:
- PEAQ-Compliance for 21 CFR Part 11 compliant operation and data analysis
- PEAQ-Performance to ensure optimal system operation
- PEAQ-Smart (including PEAQ-Finder) for SOP-based operation and automated analysis
- PEAQ-Compare for the direct comparison of DSC thermograms, between molecules and between batches
