|Revolutionizing Microwave Digestion|
Milestone’s patented SRC (Single Reaction Chamber) technology is revolutionizing microwave digestion. Unlike closed vessel digestion which employs a separate vessel for each sample, all samples are placed simultaneously in the SRC for microwave digestion under high temperature and pressure conditions. Since identical digestion conditions are used for all samples, any combination of sample types can be safely and successfully digested in the same run. Maximum run capacity is 15 samples with the UltraWAVE and 40* samples with the UltraCLAVE. Digestion run time with the UltraWAVE is faster than closed vessel digestion due to its very rapid heating and cool down time, and slightly longer with UltraCLAVE due to the additional cooling time required by its large chamber.
SRC technology makes microwave digestion easier than ever before!
Only Milestone has SRC technology, and there are two Milestone SRC instruments: the all-new UltraWAVE, which brings SRC technology to the benchtop in a compact, affordable package, and the UltraCLAVE - the ultimate in sample capacity. Along with the ETHOS EZ, the UltraCLAVE and UltraWAVE make up the widest, most advanced range of microwave digestion instrumentation available, confirming Milestone’s expertise and leadership in digestion technology.
UltraCLAVE has an optional rack that holds 77 x 12mL vials. While 12mL vials are slightly too small for some sample types, they work well for microsampling applications such as clinical, and in these cases, 77 samples can be digested simultaneously.
