Customer: Institute of Sustainable Halophyte Utilization, Pakistan
The Institute of Sustainable Halophyte Utilization, University of Karachi has been established as an elaborate facility for research of various halophytes to serve as a source of fodder, forage, biofuel, oil seeds, medicinal plants and other possible usages.
Application: Determining analytes in food, soil and sludge
Solvent extraction is the most commonly used sample preparation technique for determining different analytes in food, feed, soil, and sludge. In foodstuff, this technique is used to differenti¬ate between residues and contaminants.
Equipment: Extraction System B-811
A flexible instrument which enables the use of four different extraction techniques in one sys¬tem. The extraction chamber is spacious enough to hold the large 41x123 mm extraction thim¬bles as an alternative to the glass sample tube with frit. Independent heating sources allow for processing different samples at the same time.
Benefit / Conclusion:
The equipment is very versatile as it enables the use of four different extraction techniques, without the inconvenience to convert the glass assembly. The B-811 provides the full range of solid-liquid extraction techniques without getting stuck in method development and without putting up with a world of adjustable parameters. The instrument also has very high recovery rates compared to similar techniques and instruments, which is important for the institute in terms of cost savings.
