Microwave Digestion

Multiwave 3000

  • The Multiwave 3000 by Anton Paar is a versatile and powerful microwave sample preparation system that is easy to operate and ideally suited for many analytical techniques. This configurable system allows the user to select rotors, sensors and options to meet all their sample preparation needs: Drying, Evaporation, Acid Digestion, UV-Digestion, Oxygen Combustion, and Solvent Extraction. Samples are digested by microwave radiation at a frequency of 2.45 GHz. Cooling and exhaust unit automatically cool down the reaction vessels to approx. 60C after completing digestion cycle. Samples are digested using wet-chemical high-pressure for trace elemental analyses with ICP and AAS in environmental studies.

Common Applications:

  • Acid decomposition of samples for trace element analysis 
  • Solvent extractions for organic compound analysis

Potential Capabilities:

  • Microwave-assisted drying of samples 
  • Microwave-assisted ashing of samples 
  • Protein hydrolysis

Features and Benefits:

  • 1400 W microwave power ensures fast heating
  • Reliable remote sensors for convenient operation
  • Fast built-in cooling system to reduce total cycle time improving productivity
