Only One Responsible Source and No Other Supplies or Services Will Satisfy agency Requirements. The award will be for a fully automated digestion system with lift and reflux condenser systems that will require to quantify total nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and other micro and macronutrients in the soil, plant and water samples. This system is designed for safe, convenient and flexible digestion of aqueous and solid samples and it is also used for the analysis of chemical oxygen demand and other reflux chemistries. Our research requires an instrument with an accurate level measurement of organic and inorganic concentrations of macro- and micronutrients in agricultural samples. This instrument fully controls digestion temperature, has lift and reflux head accessories for user interface that adapts to actual sample configuration and exhaust manifold and acid scrubber that condense moist acidic fumes and dilute in a large acid trap. It is the only product that has its own acid trap system that does not require to operate under a washdown facility into the hood and duct. This feature of the digestion system is very important to our unit because our wet chemistry laboratory is not equipped with washdown hoods for acid digestion. This instrument is the only digestion system than can perform complete Kjeldahl analysis of samples from digestion to neutralization. Fisher Scientific is the only known source of this type of digestion system that can satisfy all of the above criteria and meet the requirements of the researcher.
