Your input guided our development of the Milestone ETHOS X with a new fastEX-24 rotor to specifically address the challenges of today’s environmental laboratories.

The Milestone ETHOS X microwave lab station in combination with our fastEX-24 rotor offers your lab simultaneous extraction of 24 samples in 40 minutes with minimal solvent usage. Our unique WeflonTM material provides homogeneous heating and facilitates accurate contact-less temperature monitoring of all vessels. Each vessel holds 100 mL disposable vials allowing you to extract 30 g samples while eliminating memory effects and clean up.

The benefit:
Higher throughput and easier handling results in both reduced cost and turnaround time for your lab.

The fastEX-24 rotor helps laboratory professionals increase throughput and lower operating costs.

  • 24 samples in less than 1 hour
  • Large disposable glass vials (100 mL)
  • Run up to 30 g of sample
  • Unique Weflon material provides homogenous heating
  • Contactless temperature control of all vessels
  • Easy-to-use capping tool
Largest microwave cavity.

Milestone uses 18/8 stainless steel construction throughout creating the most durable and reliable microwave.

  • The stainless steel interior is coated with Teflon to protect against corrosion from acids and solvents.
  • A self-resealing pressure responsive door ensures maximum safety in the unlikely event of over-pressure release.
  • Microwave cavity capacity of 70 liters, is by far the largest currently available. Offering more flexibility and versatility.

EasyCONTROL, which is fully CFR Part 11 compliant, is the most intelligent, yet easy-to-use, software ever designed for microwave extraction.

  • Built in libraries/pre-stored methods
  • Large full color touch screen display
  • Monitors the extraction program by temperature and MW energy
  • Program different user profiles

Milestone’s ETHOS X microwave system with the fastEX-24 rotor is specifically designed for the environmental laboratory offering a breakthrough solution in the microwave assisted extraction of organic pollutants in full compliance with US EPA 3546.

Observing the working routine of environmental laboratories, our goal was to help address today’s challenges providing an integrated solution able to render their activity easier, faster and safer. The ETHOS X processes more samples in less time and uses a fraction of the solvent required by other technologies.
