ultraWAVE allow polymers analysis lab to tackle difficult samples for elemental analysis



Jordi Labs is a leader in polymer analysis, serving a wide variety of industries including pharmaceutical, chemical and medical devices. For over 30 years, Jordi Labs has provided extensive and specialized analytical testing of polymers, additives, pharmaceutical products, and more.
Each year, we provide more than 1,000 analyses and offer expertise in more than 60 analytical techniques. We have over a dozen chromatography and mass spectrometry instruments, ranging from QTOF-GCMS and LCMS to ICP-MS.


Elemental analysis of polymer systems is frequently inconclusive or erroneous if the sample is not completely digested.
Its laboratory required a microwave system which could tackle the toughest polymers and samples it encounter, allowing to provide customers with the highest quality analytical data.
We especially liked the fact that the ultraWAVE allows for analysis of different samples simultaneously without cross contamination, increases throughput, reduces method development and works for volatile elements

We were impressed by the quality and efficiency of the ultraWAVE from the beginning. In our search for a microwave system, we were looking for a versatile instrument which could accommodate the broadest range of applications and digest the most difficult samples we encounter. The ultraWAVE does just this, and more. We especially liked the fact that the ultraWAVE allows for digestion of different samples simultaneously. This not only simplifies method development, but allows us to meet our throughput demands. Difficult samples such as polymers and greases are easily digested with the ultraWAVE, yielding clear and colorless solutions and superior trace metals analysis down to ppt levels.


The ultraWAVE is based on the SRC (Single Reaction Chamber) technology, that achieves extraordinary performance capabilities combining microwave heating with a high-pressure reactor which acts simultaneously as microwave cavity and vessel.
