Quality analysis starts with great sample preparation

Effective microwave digestion is the first and fundamental step for successful sample preparation for ICP-MS analysis as well as AA/ICP-OES.

If there is no confidence in initial sample preparation stage, then there can be no confidence in the results from subsequent analyses. Complete digestion is therefore essential for achieving accurate results in metal analysis.  Since 1988, Milestone has provided microwave systems featured by unmatched throughput, safety and performance. These decades of experience have led to the development of the most intelligent yet powerful microwave digestion instruments to satisfy a wide array of application needs.
  • Technological innovation at its best
  • True safety by design
  • Unmatched perfomance capabilities
  • 30-years of expertise for your satisfaction

The Game Changer in Microwave Digestion

The Game Changer in Microwave Digestion

ultraWAVE

ultraWAVE is truly revolutionizing the field of microwave digestion. The Patented ultraWAVE Single Reaction Chamber (SRC) technology goes beyond traditional closed and open vessel digestion, offering significantly greater digestion capabilities for even the most difficult samples.

Improved workflow
The ultraWAVE completely removes the handling related to the opening/closing of the vessels.

2X the thoughput
15 samples are processed in 45 minutes start to finish.

No batching required
Any combination of sample types can be digested simultaneously; no need to batch samples.

Lower operating costs
Vessel cleaning is eliminated with disposable glass vials, and method development is virtually eliminated.

Scaled up SRC technology for ultimate throughput

Simultanous, Fully Automated Microwave Digestion System

UltraCLAVE

The UltraCLAVE performs beyond the current limitations of traditional microwave sample preparation. Chemists can digest large sample masses, large batches of mixed sample types, and even the toughest sample matrices requiring sustained high temperatures.

Automatic operations
All the steps are automatically performed and controlled by the system operating software.

Extremely high throughput
Several standard racks are designed to hold 6 to 77 individual sample containers made of glass, quartz, or TFM.

One digestion method for all samples
Any combination of sample types can be digested simultaneously, with no need to batch samples into identical types.

Long-term savings
Reduced acid usage, consumables, and need for labor provide long-term cost savings.
