What we offer:
15-Minute COD Analysis for wastewater and drinking water
The Mantech PeCOD approach measures photocurrent charge originating from the oxidation of organic species contained in a sample to quantify COD.
The result is that the user obtains the most accurate measurement of organic pollution, in less than 15 minutes, with no use of dichromate and mercury.
Clean, economical and efficient metal digestions
The Environmental Express Hotblocks have revolutionized the way laboratories think of metals digestions. With these HotBlocks, laboratories can now perform digestions of samples under uniform temperature conditions up to 96 samples at a time. The HotBlock is made of a PTFE-coated graphite block within a Kydex® housing with no exposed metallic parts reducing corrosion potential from the highly acidic environment. The HotBlock® utilizes our disposable polypropylene digestion tubes for all EPA approved metals digestions, allowing laboratories to eliminate the washing of glassware.
Automation of the sample prep steps in the laboratory is oftentimes key to a laboratory's overall success. With the introduction of the AutoBlock, we have truly automated the metals digestion process. Users no longer have to manually add acid and reagents to samples, set timers to turn off heat, or manually adjust temperatures based on various method requirements.
Fastest N/protein determination in beer, milk & soft drinks
Elementar is the pioneer of the Dumas combustion analysis for the determination of N/Protein from macro samples into the gram range, which currently replaces more and more the wet-chemical Kjeldahl method.
The upright crucible design ensures an optimal combustion of any kind of liquid samples, such as milk, beer, soft drinks, juice, soy sauce, etc. Combined with the unique post-combustion technology a reliably high, matrix-independent data quality is achieved. Solid samples of 1 g can be measured with outstanding precision and accuracy.
An important area of application is the food-analysis. For example the investigation of oils or fat, sugar and sugar containing substances. Also beer and spirituous beverages belong to the material class, which are investigated by refractometry. Furthermore, refractometers are used as universal detectors in the investigation of liquids.
The new double isolated Peltier systems allows fastest temperature control and reduces the influence of environment temperature, resulting in fast and precise measurements.
The VariRef has the well-established S&H sample room. Its flat shape is ideal for easy cleaning. When dealing with hard to clean or hazardous materials we offer you a special covered version to ensure a long and proper product life.
The intelligent sample preparation for your elemental analysis
CEM Mars 6 is the easiest, safest and most intelligent microwave digestion system on the market.
It is the only system that uses integrated sensor technology to recognize the vessel type as well as the sample number then apply the appropriate amount of power to ensure the highest quality digest. With options for remote system control and contactless all vessel temperature control, the MARS 6 is ready to handle your most difficult samples.
iLink: Monitor and control your Mars 6
With iLink you will be able to operate and monitor your MARS 6, or multiple MARS 6 systems, and get the results on your mobile device. You’ll be free to move around in the lab and free to focus on other tasks.
Sterilization and Pasteurization
It is important that the food industry ensures that its products meet the highest standards of microbiological quality.
What is sterilization?
Unlike pasteurization, the sterilization process seeks the elimination of all microorganisms, pathogenic or not, that reside in fresh foods and cause their decomposition, by treatment at temperatures above 100ºC.
In this case, the food is heated from 120ºC to ultra high temperatures (UHT) of 140º, to cause the death of the microorganisms and their spores. Because microorganisms do not survive, sterilized products have a longer shelf life than pasteurized products, although its disadvantage is that it can affect the quality of some products.
What is pasteurization?
Pasteurization allows the elimination of microorganisms that cause food adulteration. It is a thermal treatment to reduce the microbiological load of liquids and solids, controlling the temperature and time of the process. It consists of heating a food to temperatures below 100ºC for a brief period of time and cooling it quickly, during times and temperatures that vary according to the type of product, its format or type of packaging.
