How do you cope with an ever increasing sample load for nitrogen determination using Kjeldahl, with rising costs per analysis and requirements for thorough documentation? BUCHI offers a solution for analysing up to 120 samples in a single working day, with just one set of instruments utilizing automation from sample preparation to data processing. The key to the high throughput is perfectly synchronized and optimised process steps from digestion to result generation.
The KjelDigester K-449 meets the highest safety requirements as all the exhaust gases created during digestion are captured by a sealed suction system and neutralised through the attached Scrubber K-415. It digests up to 20 samples with full walk away convenience at unprecedented speed. The rack accommodating the samples can be placed in the KjelSampler K-377 for automated sample transfer ready for subsequent distillation. The K-377 features two independent rack trays enabling a second batch of 20 samples to be loaded while the first batch is being processed. This continuous workflow and the fast digestion process allows the highest sample throughput using just one perfectly synchronized digestion/distillation/titration system.
Data traceability for GLP compliance is guaranteed by multiple authorization levels and thorough documentation in conjunction with the KjelLink PC software. KjelLink facilitates not only data integrity and exchange with LIMS, but also displays the status of operation on an external PC, thus reducing on-site supervision to a minimum.
