    No sample transfer

    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.

    On-board heating and dispensing of reagents

    Innovative safety features help you to raise the safety level in everyday operations. All reagents are dispensed automatically avoiding any contact with hot chemicals and their fumes. In addition, automatic heat reduction when the boiling point is reached prevents spillage.The system adds antifoam and enzymes automatically (when required).
