Every day environmental laboratories analyzes a long list of contaminants in soils, sediments, wastes and other solids matrices. Although, chromatography instruments have been substantial improved, the extraction process is still today the bottleneck and the most time-consuming procedure. By looking at the routine process of several contract laboratories around performing microwave solvent extraction, we defined the solution that led to creation of ETHOS X and fastEX-24 extraction rotor to specifically address the challenges of today’s environmental laboratories.
Based on the requirements of official methods such as the US EPA and the ASTM, the ETHOS X with fastEX-24 allows environmental labs to accomplish a wide variety of extraction procedure to analyses Semivolatile organics, PCBs, PAHs, Phenols, Pesticides, herbicides, dioxins and furans.
Microwave assisted extraction (MAE) overcomes the limitations of Soxhlet extraction, resulting in rapid sample preparation with reduced amounts of solvents while working at higher temperatures and pressures.

Learn how to improve the extraction process

The true importance of sample prep processing procedures and its impact on the analysis quality.

Large sample amount
in disposable glass vials.

The ETHOS X with fastEX-24 rotor extracts up to 30 grams of sample with minimal solvent volume, helping analysts to accomplish their tasks.
The Milestone fastEX-24 rotor uses disposable glass vials, eliminating the need for cleaning and the possibility of memory effect between different runs. The 100 mL vials can accommodate the extraction of a large sample amount. The easy to handle and affordable cost of the vials leads to high productivity at a very low running cost.

Easy of use

A simple 4-step process to prepare your run:
  1. Load the sample
  2. Add the solvent
  3. Insert the glass vial
  4. Close the vessel

Productivity

The ETHOS X meets the demands for productivity required by modern environmental laboratories. While other technologies process sequentially one sample at the time, increasing the overall sample preparation time, the ETHOS X simultaneously processes 24 samples in 40 minutes!
Productivity
Productivity based on 8 hours working shift. 24 samples requiring 40 minutes with the ETHOS X, 240 minutes with Sequential Pressurized Liquid Extraction and multiple hours with Soxhlet.

Consistency and reliability

Data quality and reliability are key for environmental labs. The ETHOS X with fastEX-24 rotor provides fast, accurate and precise analysis. The unique design of the fastEX-24 rotor with its large volume disposable glass vials eliminates cross contamination and memory effect, resulting in reproducible results.

US EPA 3546 Compliance

Following US EPA 3546? This is a procedure for extracting water insoluble or slightly water soluble organic compounds from soils, clays, sediments, sludges, and solid wastes.
Microwave extraction is faster and produces more accurate and precise results than other methods. Typical applications of microwave-assisted solvent extraction: chlorinated pesticides, semi-volatile organics, PAHs, PCBs, chlorinated herbicides, phenols, organophosphorus pesticides, dioxins and furans.

Low running cost

With low solvent consumption and high productivity, the ETHOS X reduces the cost per analysis for the extraction of environmental pollutants. In addition, the Ethos X provides the flexibility to perform sample preparation for metals analysis on the AAS, ICP and ICP-MS. Two different applications with a single microwave platform!
Low running cost

Versatility

The ETHOS X is available in several configurations to accomplish a wide range of applications. It encompasses Milestone’s visionary concept of “Total Microwave Sample Preparation” and, with a comprehensive choice of accessories, ETHOS X also offers a complete first-class solution for microwave acid digestion, high-temperature fusion, vacuum evaporation, and even or protein hydrolysis in the same microwave platform.
