"Difficult to calibrate and not easy to set up methods. It is not clear from the manual how to troubleshoot problems."
Revolutionary iTAG technology for the rapid, safe and direct determination of protein:
■Very easy to use with no hazardous chemicals
■Ideal for protein analysis in food
■Accurate protein test that does not depend on measuring all of the nitrogen in a sample
■Automates Official AOAC methods
Bioscience meets food science with CEM’s new SPRINT™ Rapid Protein Analyzer for fast, accurate protein testing. This patent-pending system, which uses iTAG protein-tagging technology, identifies and measures only protein, not nitrogen, so you can be certain your results are not affected by fillers or contaminants.
SPRINT’s iTAG technology only tags the amino groups found in proteins. Fillers and other sources of non protein nitrogen (NPN) are just ignored. Traditional protein measurement techniques like Kjeldahl and combustion (Dumas) cannot tell if the nitrogen present came from protein or other components.
