Project Description

vario EL cube

The benchmark in elemental analysis.

The most versatile instrument in CHNS+O+Cl analysis

In close cooperation with our customers, the market-leading vario EL III analyzer was further developed to meet the growing demands of the 21st century. The result of these developments is the vario EL cube, the most flexible and versatile CHNS+O+Cl analyzer on the market.

The vario EL cube uses the well-proven and tested cube platform technology, which has been designed using the latest manufacturing methods and intelligent engineering. Having the vario EL cube in your lab you can expect:

  • Market-leading precision
  • To measure with the largest dynamic range of element concentrations and element ratio
  • Full digitalization which enables 24/7 operation
  • Analysis of samples in the microgram range
  • Robustness: calibrations are stable over years
  • Up to 120 samples per run
  • A baseline separation under all circumstances thanks to purge & trap technology
  • 10 Years warranty on detector and furnace

First class solution for all applications

The vario EL cube is a real allrounder which measures samples from micrograms up to 1 g whilst enabling simultaneous CHNS-determination. Oxygen and chlorine detection are options that can be easily added later to the basic configuration as an upgrade.
