The ANKOM2000 Fiber Analyzer is designed to efficiently and accurately determine Acid Detergent Fiber (ADF), Neutral Detergent Fiber (NDF), and Crude Fiber within food and/or feed samples. Enabled by Filter Bag Technology, up to 24 samples can be processed at one time. During analysis cell contents are removed as the encapsulated sample is subjected to the appropriate chemical (AD, ND, or crude fiber acid and base) solutions, leaving the desired fiber fraction. Results are determined gravimetrically. The filter bags are designed to allow proper flow of solutions while retaining non-soluble components. The fiber residue captured in the filter bag can be used for follow-on assays such as ADIN, NDIN, and ADL. Like the ANKOM200 Fiber Analyzer, digestion and rinse operations are all performed within the same instrument, allowing for the elimination of the separate filtration step. Process temperatures are precisely controlled while providing proper agitation to ensure a uniform flow of chemical solutions and rinses across each sample.
