JENA, GERMANY — With the multi N/C duo, Analytik Jena presents an analyzer that considerably simplifies TOC analysis (total organic carbon). For the first time, it is possible to analyze solid and liquid samples using one single device—highly automated and without laborious equipment conversion.
The multi N/C duo is designed particularly for labs in the environmental sector that see themselves confronted with an increasing number of solid and liquid samples. Automation and high quality of analysis are brought together harmoniously by the device—with additional ease of use for the operator. The instrument is the ideal solution for TOC analysis of contaminated soil, biowaste, dust, ashes, and other solid environmental samples as well as water samples of any kind.
Thanks to its high degree of automation, the new TOC analyzer of modular design can process up to 48 solid samples in less than four hours. Add to this the highly automated and clean handling of liquid samples, with up to 146 samples per sequence and parallel purge and analysis in NPOC operations. Switching between the solid and liquid mode takes only a few mouse clicks. In order to measure solid matter, the multi N/C duo uses a robust, catalyst-free oxidation technique, which makes a considerable contribution towards reduced running costs. Furthermore, low-wear ceramic components make the combustion system of the analyzer particularly low-maintenance. Solid sample weights in the gram range compensate for the inhomogeneity of samples, thus increasing the reproducibility of the analysis results.
