Flexibility and performance that make the difference
The SK-15, the MAXI-44, MAXI-24 HP digestion rotors feature unique Milestone MDR technology to control the inner pressure of all vessels in complete safety. This 'vent and reseal' technology for pressure release is the foundation of Milestone's leadership in microwave digestion.
The SK-15, MAXI-44 and MAXI-24 HP offers, high quality digestion, high sample throughput and high performance.
A large selection of high purity quartz and TFM inserts are available for these rotors to work with smaller sample amounts or to minimize the dilution factor of analytical solution.
Our microwave digestion systems can be used with a wide range of rotors and accessories providing a flexible, versatile and productive platform for digestion and extraction processes, microwave synthesis, protein hydrolysis and vacuum evaporation. For example, our selection of extraction rotor with flagship fastEX-24 with disposable vessels can extract up to 30 grams of sample with minimum solvent volume.
Two completely new rotors offering both high quality digestion and high sample throughput are available for the ETHOS UP. The SK-15 and the MAXI-44 feature the unique Milestone MDR technology for controlling the inner pressure of all vessels in complete safety. This 'vent- and reseal' approach (#ancora) for pressure release is the foundation of Milestone's leadership in microwave digestion.
Finally, a large selection of high purity quartz and TFM inserts (link) are available for the SK-15 and the MAXI-44 rotors for smaller sample amounts or to minimize the dilution factor of the analytical solution.
Regardless of the samples you’re trying to digest, the SK-15 High-pressure rotor is always an effective option to simplify your journey from sample to analysis, even with hard-to-digest samples, reactive samples or large sample masses. The SK-15 is a high-pressure and high-temperature rotor with a capacity of up to 15 PTFE-TFM vessels of 100 mL.
Many laboratories routinely process high number
of samples, such as soils, sediments and aqueous
samples. The MAXI-44, featuring up to 44 PTFE-TFM
vessels of 100 ml, perfectly matches these requirements, providing high productivity, reliability and superior ease of use. The MAXI-44 finds its natural fit in all laboratories
requiring to process large samples batches.
The MAXI-24 High Performance (HP) and high
throughput rotor was designed with double pressure
limits and greater capacity than other high throughput rotors. It processes increased volumes of sample and a wide variety of matrices within a single rotor-based platform. Quick-assembly vessels are closed with a simple hand-tightening, improving your daily productivity.
Handling a large number of digestion vessels impacts lab workflow and operator's time. By improving this step, your
lab can achieve a fast and reliable digestion process with lower operator time. The easyCAP, suitable for MAXI-44
or MAXI-24 High Performance (HP) rotors, improves the
handling of the digestion vessels, ensures
the proper closure of each vessel and grants consistent and reliable
The easyCAP, with its minimum footprint and light
weight, can be easily installed under any fume hood, and be ready for use in a few seconds.
With the comprehensive choice of rotors and accessories available, you can turn the ETHOS UP and ETHOS EASY into a versatile platform able to perform also solvent extraction, protein hydrolysis, vacuum evaporation and alkaline fusion.

All Milestone rotors feature an enhanced 'vent-and-reseal' technology for controlling the inner pressure of all vessels with complete safety. This patented (US Patent 5,270,010) technology provides the operator with unsurpassed safety and performance capabilities: highest temperature and pressure, highest safety standards and ease of use. While other systems are designed to continuously release pressure during the digestion, the Milestone system is a safety mechanism which releases only the excess pressure from the vessel. The digestion Milestone methods along with the vessel technology ensure complete digestion and avoid any pressure release, which happen if the vessel reaches its pressure limit. This ensures that there is no acid fumes in the cavity and no loss of sample as happens with continuous venting system. The illustration shows 'vent-and-reseal' in action: the vessel cap is held in place by a dedicated pressure release mechanism (1). In the case of over pressure, the mechanism allows the cap to lift up slightly (2) releasing excess pressure, then it reseals again the vessel (3) to complete the digestion process. 'Vent-and-reseal' approach ensures reliable digestion quality, increase the lifetime of the system and the overall safety, avoiding continuos vessels venting, which impacts the reliability of the digestion (loss of elements or sample), the lifetime of the overall systems (corrosion, damages to the vessels components) and the exposure of the operator to acid fumes. While there are other methods of venting, only Milestone has 'vent-and-reseal' technology.
