A new Kjeldahl analysis solution by FOSS incorporates technological advances to make the analysis process safer and more efficient for laboratory users.
A new Kjeltec 8000 series instrument installed earlier this year at the Viking Malt laboratory in Halmstad, Sweden is minimising risk of chemical contact during the Kjeldahl analysis used for testing protein content of malt and wort.
These analytical instruments eliminate the need for lab users to handle glass tubes full of hot chemicals.
According to laboratory operator AnnaStina Enell, since the Kjeltec 8000 series instrument empties every tube automatically, users can avoid the risk of carrying the tubes full of hot chemicals across the room.
Having to choose between the manual and automatic titration models of the Kjeltec 8000 series instrument, Laboratory Manager Lisa Johansson opted for the automated model because safer Kjeldahl testing was an important goal.
The decision to go with the new Kjeltec instrument has brought in the desired results.
Key benefits include improved safety, greater reliability of results and faster throughput of samples.
