What we offer:
Fat analysis in only a few seconds
CEM ORACLE: Absolutely NO method development. Just push the run arrow and your analysis starts.
ORACLE is the first ever rapid fat analyzer that requires absolutely no method development. At the touch of a button. ORACLE can analyze fat in any food sample with reference chemistry accuracy, without any prior knowledge of the sample matrix and composition.
Moisture / Solids Analysis
The CEM SMART 6™ is the fastest combined microwave with halogen moisture/solids analysis system available on the market.
Samples reach optimal drying temperature in less than 5 seconds.
Your total Moisture Analysis will only take 2-4 minutes.
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 and solids.
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.
Polarimetry made faster than ever
The Schmidt-Haensch VariPol takes the proven S&H technology to a new level combining it with new innovations and all advantages of the VariFamily.
The VariPol makes polarimetry faster than ever. The new integrated peltier system can change 10°C in 30 seconds to highest precision. After stabilisation of the temperature the measurement itself takes only 6 seconds. The 100mm sample room is optimal for the needs of pharmaceutical and chemical laboratories.
Total Fat Extractor
The EDGE® is an automated extraction system that’s faster than Soxhlet, more automated than QuEChERS, and simpler than other solvent extraction systems. Extract a wide range of samples and sizes at least 3 times faster than other pressurized fluid extractors. This includes filtering, cooling, and washing. The EDGE has revolutionized the extraction process for sample preparation.
Fat extractions are an important aspect of food testing and safety. They are critical to the accurate calculation of nutrition facts and quality assurance. Traditionally, fat extractions are done using acid prehydrolysis and the Soxhlet method, which is laborious, manual, and time consuming. Thus, faster and automated methods are needed. The CEM EDGE automated extraction system, was used to extract the fat from different food samples using an acid prehydrolysis protocol before extraction. The direct extraction of each food was also completed. Foods considered low, medium, and high-fat were all extracted with excellent recoveries and RSDs. The EDGE is an ideal choice for food laboratories that need to obtain intact fat extracts and wish to incorporate automation into their workflow.
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.
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.
Extraction of Pesticides
Pesticide testing is crucial to assessing the safety of fruits and vegetables for consumption. The traditional extraction method for pesticides from produce is the QuEChERS method. This method is tedious, manual, time consuming, and wasteful. Thus, there is a need for improved methods of extraction. The EDGE®, in combination with Q-Matrix™ Hydra, a waterremoving sorbent, can be used to extract a panel of pesticides from 10 g of homogenized cucumber, tomato, and green pepper in less than 9 minutes. The recoveries of the pesticide panel were greater than 70% for each matrix tested, and these results were highly reproducible. The EDGE provides a fully automated extraction that combines both the sample and sorbent into one sample vessel, alleviating the human burden of extraction and the need for multiple sample transfers.
Extractions of Pesticides, PAH, PFAS, dioxins & VOC
The EDGE® is an automated extraction system that’s faster than Soxhlet, more automated than QuEChERS, and simpler than other solvent extraction systems. Extract a wide range of samples and sizes at least 3 times faster than other pressurized fluid extractors. This includes filtering, cooling, and washing.
