|Which Product is Right for Me?|
With the widest range of microwave digestion technologies and instrumentation available, we recognize that analysts may need guidance on choosing which technology and product best fits their needs.
The choice depends on the application, number of different sample types, total number of samples per week, and budget.
Low/Moderate throughput, Single sample matrix
For smaller numbers of samples, and particularly where only a single sample matrix is digested, a good choice is the closed vessel ETHOS EZ – especially where budget is limited.
Moderate Throughput, Multiple sample types, Challenging samples
Labs that have different sample matrices to digest, especially where some may be challenging, will find the UltraWAVE much more efficient and cost effective than a closed vessel system, due to the greatly reduced labor costs required for sample loading and reduced consumables costs.
High Throughput, Multiple sample types, Challenging samples
For labs with the highest workloads and multiple sample types, the UltraCLAVE will quickly repay its higher purchase price, through savings in both labor and consumables costs.
Organic samples (large sample weight)
Labs with large sample weights for organic material to digest could opt for open vessel digestion with the ETHOS EZ and MOD rotor; or choose either the UltraWAVE or even UltraCLAVE , depending on the sample processing capacity needed.
