Click to ViewEstimation of Nitrogen and protein in % basis Kjeldahl protein estimation system by Kelplus-KES20LE is a fully automated instrument with complete setup of digestion distillation and titration for the determination of organic nitrogen is the worldwide standard for the purpose of calculating the nitrogen and protein content in both human food and animal feed.

  Working Principles
Click to ViewThe Kjeldahl method is the standard method of nitrogen determination dating back to its development in the late 1800's. The method consists of three basic steps: 1) digestion of the sample in sulfuric acid with a catalyst, which results in conversion of nitrogen to ammonia; 2) distillation of the ammonia into a trapping solution; and 3) quantification of the ammonia by titration with a standard solution

  Applications
