Samples are handled separately in standard filter crucibles which are used both as an integral part of the assembly during extraction, rinsing and filtration and as sample vessels during weighing, drying and ashing. Sample residue remains in the crucible during the whole procedure, avoiding sample transfer and associated risk of error.
The FT 121 Fibertec™ Cold Extraction Unit can be used in combination with the fully automated FIbertec™ 8000 for de-fatting samples and extraction at ambient temperatures and solvent dehydration of fibre residues.
The Fibertec™ series consists of three models: the Fibertec™ 8000 and FT 122 Fibertec™ with different levels of automation.
