Cost-effective and eco-friendly nitrogen and protein analysis
Protein analysis is an essential tool for quality control in the food and animal feed industry, while the analysis of nitrogen plays an important role in the production process of nitrogen fertilizers and in the assessment of soil fertility.
We at Elementar incorporate more than 50 years of experience in the development and manufacturing of nitrogen and protein analyzers which are widely used in the beforementioned application areas, serving industry and research. Our nitrogen and protein analyzers are based on high-temperature combustion according to Dumas and provide rapid and automatic nitrogen and protein determination with highest precision and accuracy.
Nitrogen and protein analysis according to the Dumas method is approved by several international associations (ISO, AOAC, AOCS, ASBC, ICC, EBC, etc.) and has clear advantages over the wet-chemical Kjeldahl method in terms of laboratory safety, sample throughput, labor time, eco-friendliness and cost per sample.
Advantages of Dumas combustion analyzers over analyzers based on the Kjeldahl method
Safer to work with (no use of toxic chemicals)
Higher sample throughput
Less labor time
Eco-friendly (no toxic waste)
Lower cost per analysis
Our portfolio of nitrogen and protein analyzers
Our dedicated nitrogen and protein analyzers use the high-temperature combustion method according to Dumas, ensuring a cost-effective and eco-friendly nitrogen and protein determination in your solid or liquid sample. In combination with our innovative EAS REGAINER® Technology incorporated into our nitrogen and protein analyzers, protein analysis becomes even more cost-effective compared to conventional Dumas combustion analyzers. A major expense of traditional Dumas combustion is the reduction metals needed to bind excess oxygen and convert nitrogen oxides to molecular nitrogen. With our patent-pending EAS REGAINER® Technology, this cost has been greatly reduced, further driving the advantage of these Dumas analyzers over comparable systems. Combined with their reliable and robust design, our analyzers offer unsurpassed high laboratory efficiency in nitrogen and protein analysis.
