What Goes into Buying a Titrator?

Results from our laboratory product purchasing survey for titrators.

By Lab Manager

Titration has become a mainstay in analytical laboratories serving practically every industry, including chemicals, materials, environmental, and foods, to support quality control, process monitoring, or regulatory requirements. Common titration analyses include measurement of salt in potato chips, moisture in pharmaceuticals, heavy metal content of water/wastewater, iodine levels in solution, biological activity of enzymes or substrates, peroxide solution strength, wine acidity, pH of biological buffers, and many others. Titrators are the specialized instruments that perform titrations with minimal operator intervention.
