Click to ViewThe Fibertecâ„¢ 1023 determines total dietary fibre as well as the insoluble and soluble fibres separately.It is also useful in sample preparation for detailed studies of fibre fractions, e.g. by chromatographic or colorimetric techniques.

  Working Principles
Click to ViewThe system includes a shaking water bath and a filtration module for quantitative determination of dietary fibre in a variety of sample types. The filtration module filters and collects six sample solutions and includes a system for rapid dehydration. The filtration step is speeded up through a built-in “Pressure Mode”, to break up clogged filter residues during filtration. Filtration time varies from 2-4 minutes for 100 ml of digested solution. The WB 1024 Water bath incubates 12 samples in each batch. The temperature range is from ambient up to 80°C and it is possible to preset three temperatures. Batch handling processes up to 6 samples at a time saving time. Laboratories around the globe have invested in Fibertec™ instruments that go on working year after year, making Fib-ertec™ a solution that will keep your lab up to speed, well into the future.
