Microwave assisted extraction of dioxins from fly ash samples

Dioxins are toxic and persistent molecules covered by the Stockholm Convention and several governments require their analysis in environmental samples. Microwave assisted solvent extraction is a well-established sample preparation technique applied in several official methods. Milestone’s ETHOS X equipped with SR-15 eT rotor and glass vial kit was used in this study to prove its efficacy in the extraction of dioxins from fly ash samples. Discover the study that represents a guideline for the extraction of dioxins and furans from standard reference materials using the official method EPA 3546.

Microwave extraction of hydrocarbons from soils samples. A comparison with iso 16703:2004

ISO 16703:2004 specifies a method for the quantitative determination of the mineral oil (hydrocarbons) content in field-moist soil samples by gas chromatography. Many environmental laboratories use this method daily. Microwave-assisted solvent extraction is a well-established sample preparation technique applied in several official methods. Milestone’s ETHOS X with fastEX-24 eT rotor was used in this study to prove its efficacy in the extraction of hydrocarbon from soil samples in comparison with the ISO method.
