NDA 701 Dumas Nitrogen Analyser

NDA 701 Dumas Nitrogen Analyser

A powerful Dumas Protein/Nitrogen Analyser, able to perform precise nitrogen analysis and protein determination in a flash. It is the best solution for high productivity and offers unique benefits, being totally unsupervised.

Dumas Nitrogen Analyser - Full Automation & Convenience

VELP Scientifica has designed convenience into the NDA 701 Dumas Nitrogen Analyser to let the user concentrate on evaluating the results that are produced in just 3 to 4 minutes per sample.Once up to 4 discs (30 positions each) have been loaded, press the start button and walk away.

With the best limit of detection on the market and an RSD lower than 0.5% for EDTA, the user is assured of high precision results.

NDA 701, the ideal solution for high throughput, being fully automated and able to run 24/7.

Dumas Nitrogen Analyser - NDA 701 Working Process

The Dumas method starts with a combustion to burn the sample, obtaining elemental compounds. Water is removed by a first physical trap (DriStep™), positioned after the combustion, and a second chemical one. Between the two, the elemental substances passed through a reduction furnace. The auto-regenerative CO2 adsorbers let pass only the elemental nitrogen that is detected by the LoGas™ innovative Thermal Conductivity Detector (TCD) with no requirement for a reference gas.

Dumas Nitrogen Analyzer - DUMASoft™, Simple Data Management

All the information will be constantly monitored from the main screen, including the real time graph. A wide library of methods is pre-installed to support the user with valuable information on the analysis.It's also possible to create a library of the calibration curves, in order to be always ready to use the most suitable one.

At any time, a leak test can be performed, to check that the system is completely sealed and no gases comes out.After the analysis, the user can create customized test report, with lots of information about the lab and its own logo.

Dumas Nitrogen Analyser - Reliable Autosampler

The NDA 701 autosampler provides high-quality performance, both for the sample loading and the sample conditioning, where the sample is stored into a dedicated room and purged with Helium in order to eliminate any trace of nitrogen present in the atmosphere before starting the analysis.

It can stand up to 4 discs simultaneously for an enhanced productivity.The same autosampler is suitable for samples of any matrix (liquid, solid and semi-solid) up to 1 gram.

Dumas Nitrogen Analyser - Specific Accessories for High Flexibility

NDA 701 is equipped with numerous accessories designed to simplify the operation.A specific device simplifies the sample preparation for liquids; spatulas and syringes esnure correct transfer of the sample into the capsules.

In addition, VELP Scientifica produces also the main consumables, ensuring premium performance, as both the analyser and the consumables come from the same source.

Dumas Nitrogen Analyser - Accuracy and Precision

Discover the reliability of the NDA 701, as shown by the very low detection limit (0.003 mg N) and the good RSD% (<0.5% with EDTA standard). The unit can process up to 1 gram of samples, but also with small quantities (around 200 mg) NDA 701 gives optimum results with minimum consumption. No need for higher quantities as the results will be the same.
