The Omnis KF is fully integrated solution for moisture analysis and water content determination with volumetric Karl Fischer titration.

Metrohm, a manufacturer of high-precision instruments for chemical analysis, has extended its Omnis titrator platform to include a fully integrated solution for moisture analysis and water content determination with volumetric Karl Fischer (KF) titration. 

The Omnis KF handles chemicals in a closed system, eliminating contact with reagents and solvents. The water content determination starts automatically with sample injection, and the fully automated system discards used samples after measurement, which immediately prepares the cell for the next measurement. 

According to the company, the instrument is intuitive to use because the entire hardware is graphically represented in the user interface. Custom systems can be configured with drag and drop icons using desktop software or a touch screen interface. An optional sample robot makes the system almost completely autonomous and can save time by 60% when running with four parallel work stations, the company reports.
