Microwave Digestion

Reliable and professional sample preparation is as important as the analysis itself.

Microwave digestion has become the benchmark technology in preparing samples for AAS, ICP and ICP-MS. One of the most obvious reasons is the time saving associated with microwave technology when compared to heating blocks or other techniques. Milestone makes microwave digestion faster, easier, safer, and ever affordable than before. Milestone revolutionary microwave instrumentations offers solutions able to:

  • Decrease digestion times from hours to minutesMilestone
  • Avoid loss of volatile elements
  • Avoid acid fumes in laboratory’s environment
  • Avoid sample contamination
  • Low blanks since minimal quantities of acids are used
  • Avoid sample contamination
  • Run 100% unattended operations thanks to the terminal-controlled digestion program

ETHOS EASY

How EASY can microwave sample preparation become?

Ethos_Easy.jpgThe range of sample types requesting microwave digester and analysis for trace metals has grown significantly in recent years. At the same time, sample workloads have increased, and turnaround time reduced.
In addition, the development of collision cell ICP-MS has widened its applicability to more complex sample types placing additional demands on microwave acid digestion: its lower detection limits and fast analysis time require lower blank contribution and higher throughput in sample preparation techniques.
In response to these demands, Milestone has developed the new microwave digestion oven ETHOS EASY, specifically designed for closed vessel microwave acid digestion, with full control of all reaction parameters.

  • Safety by design. Best microwave hardware, temperature and pressure sensors
  • Ease of use and control. easyTEMP temperature control and advanced rotor technology
  • Performance and throughput. EasyCONTROL operating software
  • Know-How and Support. 30-years experience at your lab with the Milestone Connect
  • Flexibility. Rotor-based digestion system for hundreds of applications.
