    Product Overview

    Five element (Na, K, Li, Ca, Ba)
    Single channel Analogue Flame Photometer

    Ergonomic design with front loading, unobstructed sample work area, with removable tray for easy cleaning

    With ease of use resulting from auto ignition and flame optimisation.
    Peak picker for presenting unambiguous readings
    With selected filter indicator

    Safety features including fail safe flame detection and shut off, with low air pressure indicator

    High sensitivity with fine manual control of air, and stable flame design

    And ease of maintenance and storage
    Separate pneumatic and electronic pods
    Small footprint (20 x 30cm)
    Easy to remove and clean filter stick

     

    Available in three formats:

    360 00 009 M360 5-Element Flame Photometer – Propane/Butane
    360 00 109 M360 5-Element Flame Photometer – Natural Gas
    Both the above are supplied with individual 1000 ppm (mg/l) calibration concentrate solutions
    360 00 209 M360C 5-Element Flame Photometer – Propane/Butane
    The M360C is provided with a mixed calibration concentrate 140.0/5.00/1.50 mmol/l Na/K/Li

    It is important to order the correct part number to ensure fuel gas compatibility

    Detector response in the Model 360C is “linearised” when the Sodium filter is selected;
    the Model 360C specification – see below – assumes samples are diluted as indicated
    .

    Model 360C Specification.

    Measurement Range Linearity
    Na Serum: 110 to 170 mmol/l
    Na Urine: 0 to 200 mmol/l
    K Serum: 0 to 10.0 mmol/l
    K Urine: 0 to 200 mmol/l
    Li Serum: 0 to 3.0 mmol/l
    Na Serum within ± 2 mmol/l
    Na Urine within ± 4 mmol/l
    K Serum ‹ ± 0.2 mmol/l
    K Urine ‹ ± 2 mmol/l
    Li Serum ‹ ± 0.2 mmol/l
    Reproducibility Dilution Factor
    Na (140 mmol/l) better than 1.5% CV
    K (5 mmol/l) better than 1.5% CV
    K (80 mmol/l) better than 1.5% CV
    Li (1.5 mmol/l) better than 2.5% CV
    Na Serum/Urine: 1 in 200 with de-ionised water
    K Serum: 1 in 200 with de-ionised water
    K Urine: 1 in 1000 with de-ionised water
    Li Serum: 1 in 50 with de-ionised water

    Note: The above is correct for use with Propane or Butane. Results obtained from 20 replicates of the same sample, aspirating sample for 20 seconds, then water for 10 seconds. To achieve the stated specification the flame must be alight for a minimum of 30 minutes, with diluent being aspirated. (For a brand new, newly installed unit, the stabilisation is highly likely to be greater than 30 minutes).

    Note: For Li determinations; blank and standard solutions must contain similar levels of Na, K and Ca to those present in physiological samples.
