We are a worldwide leader in the automation of reference analysis. We therefore do not limit ourselves to the automation of labour-intensive and time-consuming classical methods, but seek to develop them further. Our automatic systems have been tested and meet the minimum requirements for precision in terms of recovery and repeatability to conform with the official international reference methods and conform with the ISO 17025 standard for accredited laboratories.
Our area of specialisation is automatic systems for Nitrogen analysis acc. to Kjeldahl and Dumas, Determination of fat content (hydrolysis and extraction) and analysis of plant fibres (crude fibre, ADFom, NDFom) which are mainly used to analyse food, animal feed, raw materials and plant matter.
VAPODEST® and KJELDATHERM® - Currently the most modern and powerful analytics systems on the market for nitrogen analysis using the Kjeldahl method. Systems comply with the data management requirements of certified or accredited laboratories (ISO 9001, ISO 17025, GLP). Analysis results exceed the requirements of official international standards such as EN/ISO, AOAC, EPA, ASTM, GAFTA.
HYDROTHERM - First automatic acid hydrolysis system for fat determination acc. to Weibull-Stoldt. Batch digestion of 6 samples. Softwarecontrolled. Minimum attention time.
SOXTHERM® - Automatic fat extraction system for batch digestion of 6 samples. Software controlled. Highest safety standard. Controlled solvent recovery.
FIBRETHERM® - Fully automated processing of the time consuming dosing, boiling, rinsing and filtration steps in crude fibre-, ADF- and NDF determinations. Batch handling of 12 samples.
DUMATHERM® - Elemental analysis of nitrogen/protein content in solid and liquid samples according to the Dumas combustion method.
VAPODEST® Kjeldahl Distillation System
VAPODEST® is currently the most modern and powerful analytics system on the market for nitrogen analysis using the Kjeldahl method. VAPODEST® 200, 300, 400, 450 differ in their automation level and are
ready to prove their outstanding performance in food and feed laboratories. Especially good for Kjeldahl protein/nitrogen determination in food, feedstuffs, soil, water, substrates and for steam distillation as sample preparation in sorbic acid and cyanide analysis.
HYDROTHERM Automatic Hydrolysis System
HYDROTHERM is the first system worldwide to do an automated acid hydrolysis for the traditional fat determination acc. to Weibull-Stoldt. The automated procedure is a revolutionary concept for fat analysis. The high level of automation saves up to 80 % of the costs per sample in comparison to the traditional analysis. HYDROTHERM works according to international regulations and meets fully the required analytical qualities. No more handling of hot acids or fumes, which means a maximum of safety.
FIBRETHERM® Automated System for Crude Fibre, ADF, NDF
The FibreBag method developed by C. Gerhardt breaks new ground in the classical crude fibre analysis procedure acc. to Weender, van Soest and others. Based on the FibreBag method, FIBRETHERM® offers the fully automated processing of the tedious boiling and filtration steps for crude fibre, ADF and NDF determination. Up to 12 samples can be digested and filtrated simultaneously, tremendous savings in lab
space and consumption of chemicals are made.
Most advanced and best equipped digestion system for Kjeldahl nitrogen analysis on the market.
Combined with the VAPODEST® digestion system from C. Gerhardt, the most modern and powerful equipment for the automated Kjeldahl nitrogen analysis. Complies with the data management requirements of certified or accredited laboratories (ISO 9001, ISO 17025, GLP). Surpasses the requirements for results of international standards, such as DIN EN ISO, AOAC, EPA, ASTM, EC regulation, APHA, Ph. Eur. 2.5.33 method 7, procedure A. Meets highest safety standards in the lab.
