Instrument Package Biochrom 30+

The new Biochrom 30+ Series of Amino Acid Analyzers

Biochrom, as a leading manufacturer of high quality Amino Acid Analyzers, is proud to present the new Biochrom 30+ series.
Capitalizing on its 40 years of experience in amino acid analysis, Biochrom has improved the popular Biochrom 30 platform on hardware and methods to deliver a faster, more reliable, easier to use instrument that gives scientists highly reproducible and accurate results.

  • New! Accelerated Method for lithium system. 
  • New! PC controlled Biochrom Autosampler with faster injection rate and more efficient cooling system. 
  • New! Interchangeable sample trays that allow samples to be prepared in advance and stored refrigerated.
  • New! Improved dual piston pumps with ceramic pump head, integrated pressure transducers and drain valve mounted on angled brackets, providing a smoother baseline and allowing easier maintenance and robustness.
  • New! Ninhydrin filter/bubble trap allowing easier and faster line priming as well as an efficient online degassing.
  • New! Nitrogen driven piston wash device allowing a continuous flushing of the back of the pistons without user intervention.
