Optimized Combustion for lower-level Nitrogen Samples in Foods

Optimized Combustion for lower-level Nitrogen Samples in Foods

Nitrogen content in food materials is necessary to measure when determining the total protein content. Performing this measurement using classical “wet chemistry” can be slow and tedious. The combustion-based Dumas method significantly increases laboratory productivity; when the sample has a low-level of nitrogen, however, it poses unique challenges.
