If you are looking to save time and level up on your accuracy and reporting, an automatic titrator may be right for you!
Using an automatic titrator instead of using a manual burette and color indicator can solve the following issues that pop up when manually titrating:
- Determining a visual color change with the naked eye. The color change can be hard to discern in colored solutions.
- Not everyone sees color the same way. This causes discrepancies between operators who are titrating. This results in inconsistent, inaccurate, and imprecise results.
- Manually titrating takes skill and patience. It is very easy to over-titrate the endpoint. This leads to falsely high results, as well as wasted samples and chemicals.
- Titrating with a manual burette means you have to allow the titrant to enter the sample drop by drop while allowing each drop to completely react with the sample. This takes a lot of time.
- If you have to report results, you do not have much traceability outside of manual records.
- It is hard to tweak manual titration methods to optimize them for your sample. You can only change the sample size or the titrant strength.
Hanna Tip: Utilizing an automatic titrator can help you to easily avoid all of the pitfalls listed above.
