Multipoint calibration
Stable over months and matrix independent
Instrument control
With a standard PC for perfect results also for unknown or heavily variable sample matrices with integrated sample feeder for 120 samples, 21 CFR part 11 functionality available. Possibility for remote service due to full digitalization of the instrument electronics
One basic instrument for all applications
No expensive special catalysts, easy ash removal from the combustion tube and long lifetime of all components are the basis for a low cost of ownership
Clean, safe, fast
The analysis only takes a few minutes, no aggressive or toxic chemicals are used, Helium carrier gas (Argon possible alternatively)
Easy installation requirements
48 x 55 cm benchtop space, 1 power supply (230, 110, 100 V), and two gases are sufficient for maintenance free long time operation
