Modern elemental analysis has emerged from its classical applications in organic chemistry and pharmaceutical analysis, moving into the control of industrial products, geology, agriculture, environment protection, biotechnology, carbon and mineral oil analysis as well as authenticity and origin analysis.
Carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen and sulfur are the basic elements of living nature. Their quantitative determination in the most versatile combinations of substances is the origin and essence of the ELEMENTAR product portfolio.
Through quantitative high temperature decomposition, solid or liquid substances are converted into gaseous compounds. The gas mixture is cleaned, separated into its components and measured by efficient detectors with a precision and accuracy of up to ±0.1% relative.
