Standard Method for Enthalpy Measurement Validation of Differential Scanning Calorimeters
|Publication Date:||10 January 2003|
|ICS Code (Heat. Calorimetry):||17.200.10|
1.1 This standard provides procedures for validating enthalpic measurements of differential scanning calorimeters (DSC) and analytical methods based upon the measurement of enthalpy or heat by DSC. Performance parameters determined include calorimetric repeatability (precision), detection limit, quantitation limit, linearity and bias. This method is applicable to both exothermic and endothermic events.
1.2 Validation of apparatus performance and analytical methods is requested or required for quality initiatives or where results may be used for legal purposes.
1.3 SI units are the standard.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
