Thermometric titration-can you feel the heat?

Thermometric titration-can you feel the heat?

Agricultural Sciences / Chemistry & Biochemistry /...

Thermometric titration is fast, simple to use, rugged, versatile and unique.
In thermometric titration, the temperature change during a chemical reaction is used for the endpoint detection. This temperature change takes place only while the titrant reacts with the analyte. This makes endpoint detection very easy!
Consequently, the thermometric titrator is the ideal solution for difficult samples with complex matrices that cannot be titrated potentiometrically.

It is well known that the gut microbiota contributes to health and disease. Many studies have demonstrated that external factors such as diet, geographical location and host genetics are key contributors. However, the relative contribution of these factors in shaping the gut microbiota is unclear, likely due to large interindividual variation.
