Shimadzu - Analytical Balance - AU Series

Thanks to the built-in UniBloc AP integrated aluminum mass sensor and an optimized control system, this balance achieves high-speed measurements with a response as quick as 2 seconds. Featuring an easyto-read organic EL display, it has been redesigned for excellent operability. The AP-W series is equipped with a function to automatically calculate the weight values required for sample concentration preparation, which supports routine weighing operations.

Available models

928 Series Macro Determinator

Carbon, Nitrogen, Protein, Sulfur

Carbon/Nitrogen/Sulfur and Nitrogen/Protein Analysis by Combustion

Easily handle heterogeneous, difficult to prepare, or low analyte level samples with the 928 Series Macro Determinator for determining Carbon/Nitrogen/Sulfur and Nitrogen/Protein by Combustion. State-of-the-art hardware and our exclusive Cornerstone® touch-screen software platform provide your laboratory with an increase in throughput, uptime, and reliability. Macro sample mass ability (up to 3 grams for Nitrogen/Protein model regardless of sample carbon content) with rapid cycle times and a low cost-per-analysis make the 928 Series ideal for these challenging macro samples.


  • Maximize laboratory productivity with unmatched sample throughput
    • Rapid cycle time of 5 minutes
    • Optional 100-sample position autoloader for sequential and non-sequential analysis
    • Sample mass: Up to 3.0 g for nitrogen (FP) (1.0 g nominal); up to 1.0 g for carbon/nitrogen (0.5 g nominal); up to 0.3 g for carbon/nitrogen/sulfur (0.2 g nominal)
  • Ergonomic, operator-centered design with boom-mounted touch-screen interface
  • Easy access to all reagent tubes and common maintenance areas for simplified maintenance
  • Extended reagent lifetimes contribute to a low cost-per-analysis
  • Horizontal furnace design with maximum temperatures up to 1450°C ensure complete oxidation of samples
  • Expanded furnace efficiency and reliability with a regent-free design


The 928 series is ideal for the following applications: Meats, Feeds, Forage, Pet Foods, Grains, Milled Products, Starch, Fermentation Products, Dairy and Cheese Products, Soils, Sediments, Fertilizers, Plant Tissue, Filtration Media, Waste Materials, Fiber and Textiles, Resins and Polymers, Paper Products, and Petroleum Products and Additives
