Automated Total Phosphorous / Total Nitrogen


Automated Total Phosphorous / Total Nitrogen

Due to the necessary sample preparation, the analysis of total phosphate and total nitrogen is expensive and labour intensive. Laboratories that analyse large numbers of samples for these parameters therefore require time-saving and inexpensive methods.

The solution comes from Hach-Lange and is called Ganimede: a complet system for serial analysis, with integrated sample digestion – Fast, Simple and Efficient in its handling.


GANIMEDE consists of three components: the sample changer, the digestion and analysis unit, and the control unit. The digestion and analysis unit is available in separate versions for the determination of phosphate (orthophosphate and total phosphate) and for the determination of TNb. Each version needs its own sample changer. The control unit can address either or both of the digestion and analysis units.
