Carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen and sulfur are the basic
elements of living nature. Their quantitative determination within
the most versatile combinations and substances is the origin and
essence of the ELEMENTAR manufacturing program.
Through quantitative high temperature decomposition, solid or
liquid substances are changed into gaseous combinations. The gas
mixture is cleaned, separated into its components and through
efficient detectors determined with a precision and accuracy of up
to 0.1% relative.
Most important is the lare dynamic range of detection, from <
0.01 to 100%. This range is even possible when there is a great
difference in relative concentrations (i.e. trace nitrogen in the
presence of high carbon content). ELEMENTAR analyzers also feature
very large sample size capabilities from < 1mg up to several
This wide range of applications with universal as well as
special instruments is only achieved by ELEMENTAR. It has long
since surpassed the classical applications from 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.
