Food Safety Application Pack for Organic Elemental Analysis
- Feb 1, 2012 - Dec 31, 2013
This information pack has been compiled to present a range of food safety applications, demonstrating how organic elemental analysis using the dynamic flash combustion technique offers a faster, safer and more reliable alternative to the traditional Kjeldahl method for the determination of nitrogen and protein content in food. The pack also includes information on our Thermo Scientific FLASH range of OEA products to facilitate automated, accurate and high throughput analysis.
Macro or Micro Organic Elemental Analysis?
Thermo Scientific organic elemental analyzers are available for both macro and
micro analytical methodologies.
The Thermo Scientific FLASH 4000 Analyzer has been designed to determine
Nitrogen in larger sample weights, up to 2 g (2000mg). This is the same sample weight used by the traditional Kjeldahl method.
The Thermo Scientific FLASH 2000 Analyzer offers micro analysis for CHNS, CHN, Oxygen or Sulfur determination when introducing a low sample size (just a few mg). With an optional upgrade, it can also be used for N/Protein and Nitrogen-only determinations, with a sample amount between 100 – 500 mg.
