Standard Test Method for Temperature and Enthalpy Measurement Validation of Differential Scanning Calorimeters
|Publication Date:||1 April 2016|
|ICS Code (Heat. Calorimetry):||17.200.10|
This test method provides procedures for validating temperature and enthalpy measurements of differential scanning calorimeters (DSC) and analytical methods based upon the measurement of temperature or enthalpy (or heat), or both, by DSC. Performance parameters determined include temperature and calorimetric repeatability (precision), detection limit, quantitation limit, linearity, and bias. This test method is applicable to exothermic events.
Validation of apparatus performance and analytical methods is requested or required for quality initiatives or where results may be used for legal purposes.
The values stated in SI units are to regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
