The Milestone ultraWAVE isn’t just an evolution; it’s a revolution—changing how industrial and research laboratories around the world prep samples for analysis. Patented ultraWAVE Single Reaction Chamber (SRC) microwave digestion technology transcends traditional closed and open vessel digestion, offering significantly greater digestion capabilities for even the most difficult sample types. High-performance stainless steel construction allows for higher pressures and temperatures, while disposable vessels eliminate the need to assemble, disassemble or clean between processing. Just as important, dissimilar samples can be processed simultaneously, saving time and money.

The bottom line? The ultraWAVE is changing the game for metals prep.

At the heart of the ultraWAVE is a Teflon-lined 1 liter stainless steel reaction chamber, which serves both as a microwave cavity and a reaction vessel.

Samples are weighed into vials, and suitable reagents are added. Vials are placed in a rack, which is automatically lowered into the reaction chamber. The chamber is sealed and pre-pressurized with inert gas, which physically acts as a cap for the vials, avoiding boiling of the solutions and preventing cross contamination. At the completion of the microwave run, a built-in cooling device rapidly lowers the temperature.
