    Abstract

    The present invention relates to a micron-scale calorimeter and a calorimetry method utilizing the micron-scale calorimeter. In accordance with the invention, there is provided a micron-scale calorimeter comprising a micro-channel string, being restrained at at least two longitudinally distanced positions so as to form a free released double clamped string in-between said two longitudinally distanced positions said micro-channel string comprising a microfluidic channel having a closed cross section and extending in the longitudinal direction of the hollow string, acoustical means adapted to oscillate the string at different frequencies by emitting sound waves towards the string, optical means adapted to detect oscillating frequencies of the string, and controlling means controlling the strength and frequency of the sound wave emitted by the acoustical means and receiving a signal from the optical means representing the detected oscillating frequencies.
