Voltammeter
voltameter 797 VA Computrace is capable to differentiate between various oidation states  of metal ions or between free and bound ions. This information allows to make statement anout the biological availability and toxicity of heavy metals and makes this technique an essential method in environmental analysis.
Another advantages include:
  •  high sensitivity (the detection limit for heavy metals is ppblevel)
  •  the small volume required
  • include 766 IC Sample processor for a larger series of samples
  • automatic rinsing of measuring cell with 772 Pump Units
  • calibration curve can be obtained automatically using 800 Dosinos
  • Multi Mode Electrode (MME) as well as rotating disk electrodes (RDE) from different materials are available as working electrodes
Glovebox
glovebox Anaerobic Chamber from Coy Laboratory can be adapted to control   a wide range of atmospheres and functions including  use as a dry glove box, inert gas (nitrogen) glove box, isolation glove box, anaerobic chambers, oxygen, and humidity control glove boxes.

Used with a variety of accessories and available in polycarbonate or UV resistant plastic, this glove box is convenient and easy  to use.

To ensure oxygen-free atmosphere, the gaskets on the side doors provide a safe seal without interfering with full access to the internal chamber. Also, Catalyst Boxes are supplied with the chamber, circulate th echamber's atmosphere through palladium catalyst to remove oxygen.

Freeze-drier
freeze-drier Freeze drying is a dehydration process that works by freezing the material and then reducing the surrounding pressure to allow the frozen water in the material to sublimate directly from the solid phase to gas.

Freeze drying is used for separation of nano-particles which are too small to centrifuge and dehydration of the sample.

Our freeze-drying system consists of  ModulyoD, a unit designed  specifically to freeze the samples, FDP80 Vacuum Pump, and Flask Drying Accesory, which consist of 8 port  manifold.
