ETHOS X Microwave Extraction System

  • 24 samples in < 1 hour

    New fastEX-24 rotor can simultaneously extract 24 samples in 40 minutes.

  • Substantial reduction in solvent

    Less solvent is needed than traditional extraction methods.

  • Large volume disposable vials

    100 mL vials can hold up to 30 g of sample.

Higher productivity for greater ROI


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.
