Eurofins offers high quality assurance and control services such as testing, certification, inspection, audits, technical services and regulations for manufacturers, brand owners, distributors and retailers throughout the world.
Since throughput and fast delivery of results is a key point for the Eurofins group, they have already in use a Milestone ultraWAVE digestion system for sample preparation for trace metal analysis.
At Eurofins Scientific in Nantes, France, the laboratory needed to reduce analysis time on over 200 samples received per day in order to produce results faster for their clients. The current sequential technology was a time consuming technique and not able to provide reproducible results on samples with very low fat content. The lab purchased seven Milestone’s ETHOS X microwave extraction systems as an alternative to sequential and Soxhlet techniques. The ETHOS X performes total fat determination on food samples in a fraction of the time with minimum solvent usage.
