Environmental Testing made Quicker and Easier with Microwave Digestion

Aug 04 2015

Social and legislative pressures on companies to carry out continuous and robust environmental testing is placing huge demand on laboratories.

Milestone’s ETHOS UP and ETHOS EASY microwave digestion systems are addressing this issue: transforming sample prep workflow in environmental testing laboratories by allowing labs to maintain high productivity and throughput by running up to 44 samples simultaneously.

The systems allow testing laboratories to achieve the maximum possible levels of efficiency whilst maintaining ongoing compliance with organisations such as UKAS and its equivalents across the UK and Ireland.

Equipped with two 950 Watt magnetrons, the systems can operate at up to 1900 Watt making them the most powerful systems available and capable of performing extractions in a fraction of the time, and with better recoveries. They enable labs to carry out microwave digestion, solvent extraction, organic and inorganic synthesis, protein hydrolysis, vacuum evaporation and more from a wide range of environmental sample types.

The ETHOS systems employ closed vessel extraction to process samples in a fraction of the time of traditional digestion methods. They produce less solvent waste than other techniques and therefore creates a safer working environment for the sample prep chemist.

The ETHOS UP and ETHOS EASY are distributed in the UK by Analytix. For more information visit analytix.co.uk/microwave-systems/digestion-systems/ethos-systems/.
