Digestion of environmental samples for trace metal analysis
Ethos technology is perfectly designed to be compliant with US EPA methods. This application report evaluates the digestion quality of the following certified reference material:
BCR 277R Estuarine sediment.
Determination of Total Mercury in Nutraceutical Samples
commonly available nutraceutical samples –
Valerian Root, Ginkgo Biloba and Glucosamine
Chondroitin were spiked by a solution having
a mean mercury concentration of ~10.2 ppb
and were run in the instrument.
This paper shows the use of Milestone Ethos X with fastEX-24 technology for extraction of
dioxins from environmental matrices, with emphasis to one of the most common challenge
of this application: the carryover effect.
US EPA 3546 for procedure for extracting organic compounds
This paper will discuss the use of Ethos X Microwave Extraction System utilizing fastEX24
rotor with disposable glass vials to extract organic pollutants from certified soils during a
recovery study following US EPA Method 3546.
This paper shows how ETHOS X can revise the nearly 120 years old Weibull-Stoldt reference method in an innovative, easy to operate way, assuring results of high analysis accuracy and quality, fully comparable with the reference one.
