Advanced Microwave Extraction Systems

Understand and overcome the difficulties of sample preparation for successful GC and HPLC Analyses.

Sample preparation is a crucial factor to be improved to follow the evolutions of modern trace organic analysis instrumentation. Microwave assisted extraction (MAE) plays a key role in maximizing the efficiency of your sample preparation process.
Without microwave extraction, various operations performed on the sample during its preparation for instrumental analysis account for 60% of the analyst’s time and are responsible for 30 to 50% of error in trace organic analysis.
In addition to these problems average trace organic chemists uses three or more sample preparation techniques per sample just to produce an analytical result.
We provide microwave-assisted extraction systems offering first-class equipment in line with highest standards in sample preparation.

ETHOS X for Essential Oils

Solvent-less fast extraction
Solvent-free microwave extraction at atmospheric pressure of fragrances and flavors, such as essential oils, in plant material.

No work-up
Once the essential oils have been extracted, they can be analyzed directly by GC-MS without any preliminary clean-up or solvent exchange steps.

High extracts purity
High quality essential oils are obtained without residual solvents, contaminants and artifacts.

No thermal degradation
The unique microwave selective heating mechanism frees essential oil, which is evaporated by the in-situ water of the plant material.

Microwave Green Extraction

Modernizing Trace Organic Analysis

In this book we discuss the importance of sample preparation for trace organic analysis.
Part I focuses on the fundamental theory of extracting an analyte from a sample matrix, modern extraction techniques, and post extraction processing.
Part II reviews modern instrumental analysis techniques as they relate to the sample preparation process and Part III discusses how advances in microwave technology bring sample preparation to the same standards as instrumental techniques.
