Microwave sulfated ashing procedure for pharmaceuticals

The USP chapter describes the methodology for measurement of inorganic contaminants in pharmaceutical samples, where the adopted technique is the Sulfated Ashing. Milestone's PYRO is an advanced sulfated ashing system, that allows to run this particular application in one step only, thus assuring operators’ safety and reproducibility of results.

Carbon black determination in olefin plastic

A rapid determination of the carbon black content allows quick feedback to production and for adjustment when required. The use of Milestone’s PYRO muffle furnace (High Sample Throughput configuration) along with self-closing quartz crucibles and dedicated rack (20 positions) ensures fast determination and high reproducibility compared with the reference method ASTM D1603.
