Filtration Unit for Dietary Fibre

Dietary fibre includes cellulose, hemicellulose, lignin, pectins, gums and waxes. For its determination by thermostable enzymes, the AOAC proposes method 985.29 (AOAC Official Methods of Analysis). Velp developed this 6 places equipment that makes the critical filtration step easier and faster thus increasing reproducibility in the analysis of bran, meal, fodder, cereals, etc.

Glass crucible


F30400209: Velp Enzymatic Digestor Model GDE

Thermostatting unit composed of an immersion heating head, a transparent tank and a magnetic stirrer with 6 places, which allows a precise control of temperature during the critical enzymatic digestions. Supplied complete with operation manual.

Enzymatic methods reproduce better than chemical methods the natural phenomena occurring during digestion in humans and animals. The undigestible residue determined by chemical methods is defined as 'raw fibre', the residue obtained by enzymatic methods is defined as 'dietary fibre' (soluble, insoluble and total).
