Premium accuracy and precision

Premium accuracy and precision

The automatic Kjeldahl analyzer UDK 159 colorimetric titrator guarantees accuracy, precision, and a long lifetime. 

With a limit of detection (LOD) of 0.015 mgN and a limit of quantification (LOQ) of 0.04 mgN, UDK 159 is perfect even for challenging analyses with samples containing a low amount of Nitrogen.

The system relies on a colorimetric measurement of a chemical reaction with automatic endpoint detection. 

VELP colorimetric titrator benefits:

  • Completely automatic procedure 
  • Calibration-free
  • Maintenance-free

The UDK 159 allows to constantly monitor the titration with the real-time graph displayed on the instruments.
