Assuring Safe Operation of Microwave Digesters

by Angelo DePalma, PhD

Microwave digestion in concentrated acid reliably eliminates sample matrix while rendering metals to species appropriate for analysis by inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry or atomic absorption.

Product Focus: Microwave Digesters

When preparing a sample for analysis that requires high temperature and pressure in an acidic environment, a scientist selects microwave digestion for the process. This attracts scientists from an extraordinarily large range.

Product Focus: Microwave Sample Prep

by Angelo DePalma, PhD

Microwave digestion is the preparation method of choice for analyzing metals in complex mixtures. Food and environmental industries favor this technique, which is also applicable to testing materials, soil, agricultural waste products, engine oils, and biological samples.
