The Perkin-Elmer TGA-7 thermogravimetric analyzer measures the weight loss of samples upon heating. The samples can be heated in a nitrogen or an air atmosphere, the gas being selectable via manual mode. The furnace can heat samples from room temperature to 900°C. The balance is sensitive to 0.1 microgram. The instrument uses Perkin-Elmer Pyris software for data acquisition and processing.
