Netzsch’s Simultaneous Thermal Analysis (STA) system allows the measurement of mass changes and thermal effects between -190°C and 1000°C. This instrument can perform simultaneously Differential Thermal (DTA) and ThermoGravimetric (TGA) analyses, or Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and TGA. Thermal events, such as materials’ decomposition and phase transitions, can be quantified. A wide range of application from polymer identification to heat capacity measurements are possible. Furthermore, the furnace of the STA is coupled to a GS-MS where the mass of any volatile fragments can be analyzed and identified.



  • ThermoGravimetric analysis (TGA) with 0.1μg
  • Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and TGA (-190 to 1000 C)
  • Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA) and TGA (30 to 1000 C)
  • GC-MS (0-800 AMU)
