Instrument Details
Instrument/Facility Name: Automatic Protein-Nitrogen and Total Organic Carbon analyzer
Make                                   : Skalar, Netherlands
Model                                  : PrimacsSNC-100
Specification   :

Click to ViewThe analyzer provides fast, reliable, accurate and low level analysis for both solid and liquid systems. Equipped with an integrated autosampler with 100 positions, the sampler can analyze large daily sample loads in one batch. Re-usable quartz crucibles are used for sample weights up to 3 g of solid material. for determination of Nitrogen (N), Protein, Total Carbon (TC), Total Elemental Carbon (TEC), Total Inorganic Carbon (TIC) and Total Organic Carbon (TOC) all in one unit.

  Working Principles
Click to ViewHigh temperature combustion with Non Dispersive Infrared detection (NDIR) is used for the analysis of TOC, TEC and TIC. The determination of TN/Protein is based upon DUMAS methodology and detection with Thermal Conductivity (TCD). The DUMAS method is fast, safe and a good alternative for the old fashioned Kjeldahl.

  User Instructions
Can be used for analysis of nitrogen/protein content in plant samples.As per Instructional manual and SOP
