AS3010 Robotic pH determines Soil Lime Buffering Capacity
The Labfit AS3010 Robotic pH Lime Buffer Capacity Analyser was especially developed to automate a new titration method for determining the soil buffering capacity. This new method aids in the process to accurately determine the pH in acidic soil types and uses a new buffer which is far cheaper than the traditional SMP, Meihlic and or Adams/Evans soil buffer available today.
The AS3010 Robotic Soil Lime Buffer pH Analyser automatically buffers and homgenizes the soil sample based on analysis settings configured within the method. As the soil pH is measured, any soil sample that meets the buffer pH requirements is flagged for re-reading of the buffer pH measurement. The system includes a “phantom” rack to keep the dual pH electrodes “wet” on the last rack while a buffer is being added and stirred into the soil. The allows you to easily define where your quality controlor standard solutions are within the system with upper and lower controls, stability controls and other various analytical controls so you can be sure your results are accurate and reliable.
The AS3010 Robotic Soil Lime Buffer pH Analyser includes independent buffer pH controls over the normal “Water” pH measurement” controls. As pH electrodes tend to measure buffered soils more quickly than unbuffered soils you can configure the buffer pH analysis for speed while still maintaining your accuracy. When the AS3010 Robotic Soil pH Analyser determines that a buffer is required for a sample, it adds it to the sample while stirring in the buffer solution. This feature significantly enhances the homogenization process and allows for the sample to react more readily with the buffer solution. The system can be instructed to “Auto-Re-Measure” at the end of the run.
The system will then, at the end of the run, begin the “Buffer pH” analysis automatically and measure only soil samples that have had buffer added to them. The AS3010 Robotic Soil Lime Buffer pH Anlayzer has a capacity of up to 180 samples. At the end of the day you can add an extra 180 samples before going home and let the pH analyzer perform the soil pH analysis, ready for the morning. The system includes independent stirrer speed controls that are controlled by the method. This allows you to set a desired stirring speed for the either the water pH or buffer pH measurement.
