Total Nitrogen (Plant)

Dumas method

This technique uses an Elementar varioMAX cube to determine total N in plant materials. A 150 to 250 mg* sample is weighed into a capsule and combusted to determine the total amount of nitrogen in the sample. (*The exact mass of each sample is recorded and used in our calculations.)
