Combustion Analysis

(เครื่องวิเคราะห์หาค่า C, H, N, S และ O)

Expand your laboratory’s capabilities with an automated, accurate and reliable method to determine Nitrogen/Protein in any type of food and beverages using large sample amounts

       The Thermo Scientific FLASH 4000 is a step forward for determination of N/Protein concentration in any food matrix.

       Based on the Dynamic FLASH Combustion technique – well known as a modified Dumas method – the FLASH 4000 is the optimum choice for Quality Control and R&D environments in the food industry.

       With proven accuracy and unbeatable cost-per-analysis, the FLASH 4000 gives lab managers an automated 24/7 solution for solid and liquid samples that they can be confident in.

Beyond Kjeldahl

       The classical Kjeldahl Nitrogen method (involving sample oxidation by digestion in sulphuric acid followed by distillation and off-line titration measurements), is extremely time-consuming, expensive, and requires laboratory safety measures.

       As Kjeldahl becomes inadequate in meeting international safety rules, many official methods (e.g. AOAC, AOCS, AACC), support the Dynamic Flash Combustion/ modified Dumas method as an alternative to the well known Kjeldahl method. Furthermore, the Kjeldahl method suffers from high waste cost, the inability to operate continuously, and is dependent on the user’s experience and capabilities.

       The FLASH 4000 N/Protein analyzer overcomes all concerns of the Kjeldahl method, by reducing sample preparation. This in turn eliminates safety concerns, operator experience requirements, costs of preparation materials and most significantly, the time involved.

Recommended for: Large range of food, animal feed and beverage applications

       Elemental Analysis measures Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Sulfur and Oxygen elemental content in a wide range of sample matrices, sizes and concentrations, with accuracy and precision. Elemental analysis can be qualitative (determining what elements are present), and it can be quantitative (determining how much of each are present) can be use some material such as Food , Feed, soil, waste or drinking water, minerals, chemical compounds , etc.
