Microwave assisted extraction of Polybrominated Diphenyl Esthers (pbdes) in environmental samples
Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are brominated flame retardants ubiquitously present in the environment and likewise in biota, food and feed. Microwave assisted solvent extraction, compliant with several official methods, offers an efficient and competitive solution for sample preparation. Milestone’s ETHOS X with fastEX-24eT rotor was used in this study to prove its efficacy in the extraction of PBDEs from environmental matrices.

A new method for the determination of Cl, Br and I in food, mineralizing samples in a mixture composed exclusively of H2O2 in an alkaline medium is presented here. The high performances of ultraWAVE system allow to obtain high quality digested solutions with low Residual carbon content (RC). This innovative protocol allows to decrease the analysis process thanks to the fast sample preparation procedure performed with Single Reaction Chamber (SRC) technology.

Microwave Fat Determination in Food and Feed Samples with ETHOS X microwave extraction system
Total fat determination in food and feed matrices is a routine analysis for several testing and food processor labs, as it is part of labelling process and QC testing. Nowadays, the process still relies on outdated and matrix-dependent methods which use obsolete and time-consuming technologies. In the ETHOS X hydrolysis and extraction are done in a single step and in less time, ensuring higher productivity and better workflow. The ETHOS X method for total fat determination is applicable to any matrix; enables to process 45 sample a day, ensure lower cost per sample, offers complete fat determination and it is safe and compact.

Agro-food waste valorization as a source of valuable biochemicals in circular economy: a reality
Milestone and University of Alicante hosted an Online Free Conference on October 21, 2020, in the framework of BARBARA project. This online training conference provided a platform to meet companies and researchers interested in the application of circular economy for the valorization of agro-food wastes. The potential of microwaves and rapid antimicrobial techniques will be shown by Milestone and Metrohm Hispania. The main results obtained in BARBARA project will be presented as a successful example of valorization and final industrial application.
