Laboratories worldwide use elemental analyzers for measuring the carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, sulfur, oxygen, and halogen content in samples such as chemical-reaction products, soil, bodily fluids, and waste or drinking water. Benchtop elemental analyzers come in a variety of types for specific applications: total organic content (TOC), total organic halogens (TOX), nitrogen, nitrogen concentration relative to protein (nitrogen derived from protein molecules), and CHN analyzers, named after the three most common elements they measure—carbon (C), hydrogen (H), nitrogen (N).
This purchasing guide presents models of benchtop elemental analyzers currently available for the laboratory.
