Microwave Reaction Systems
For labs requiring high throughput capabilities, the MARS 6 allows the processing of up to 40 samples per batch. Similar products must be run together, but many types of foods and tissues can be mixed and matched as one batch. With its simple, but robust vessel design, MARS 6 is the easiest to use batch microwave system available.
Microwave Digestion System
For laboratories that receive many different sample types in any given day, Discover SP-D provides unmatched flexibility. SP-D offers individual temperature and pressure control, as well as method programming for each sample. The system is available with an optional autosampler which makes digesting samples incredibly easy.
