vario MAX cube CN
This mode provides macro analysis for simultaneous CN determination, and is particularly suitable for determining N protein levels in meats, grains, feeds, dairy products and beer. Other typical applications include plant tissue, soils, manure and compost samples, as well as liquid extracts of these materials.
This configuration is cost-effective and easy to handle, thanks to the reusable crucibles and automatic ash removal.
vario MAX cube CNS
The vario MAX cube CNS system is used for simultaneous CNS determination, with typical applications including plant tissue, soils, compost and fertilizer samples, as well as liquid extracts of these materials.
This mode offers the same reusable crucibles and automatic ash removal features as the CN configuration, maximising cost-effectiveness and ease of use.
The vario MAX cube offers high-temperature combustion at up to 1,200 °C, facilitating subsequent gas analysis. N protein analysis is carried out according to the Dumas method, with CN analysis adhering to AOAC, DIN/ISO, EN and other international standards.
Easy sample handling:
Sample weigh-in can be performed using steel or ceramic reusable crucibles without any special pre-treatment. This is suitable for solid or liquid samples up to several grams or millilitres.
Clean, safe and fast:
Each analysis only takes a few minutes, achieving a physical separation of water and CO2 without any need for aggressive or toxic chemicals.
Large concentration range
From ppm to 100% or 500 mg absolute for C & N (depending on mode) .
Low operational requirements
Running and maintaining a vario MAX cube can be achieved with only 1 m of laboratory working space, two operating gases and a single electrical connection.
The instrument’s integrated 90-position sample changer can be controlled via Windows PC, with optional 21 CFR Part 11-compliant software also available.
The elemental analyzer forms a system with an electronic microbalance, which is offered alongside analytical balances from the leading manufacturers with our instruments.
Add-on for the analysis of total inorganic carbon in the sample.
Upgrade kit for the analysis of total organic carbon in solids
21 CFR Part 11-compliant software
Our consumables kits contain all the necessary parts and chemicals for approximately 4,000 analyses, including chemicals, combustion/reduction tubes and instrument-specific wear parts. We also offer a kit with smaller wear parts, including some of the most essential O-rings and fuses used by laboratories. We do not compromise on the quality of components or chemicals in order to guarantee the longevity of our instruments.
Of course all of our consumables can also be ordered separately.
