Anton Paar sets the benchmark for the highest digestion throughput

Chimica Oggi-Chemistry Today

Rotor 41HVT56 02Anton Paar’s flagship microwave platform –Multiwave PRO – has been given another major upgrade which makes it even more appealing to ICP and AA users. The latest addition to the Multiwave PRO platform is Rotor 41HVT56: the highest throughput acid digestion rotor on the market utilizing the groundbreaking SMART VENT technology.
Anton Paar’s SMART VENT technology vessels have no consumable parts, no protective jackets, no tools to close the vessels, and no membranes which need to be replaced. The result of these features is the easiest to use vessel on the market. Rotor 41HVT56 comes with 41 vessels with 56 mL nominal volume and automated internal temperature control of each vessel. Various kinds of samples including biological, environmental, agricultural, cosmetic, and pharmaceutical samples, can be digested even in the same run.
“Before the addition of this rotor to our portfolio we already had the fastest microwave digestion system on the market,” reports Linda Kuenstl, product manager for microwave sample preparation equipment at Anton Paar GmbH. “Including heating and cooling, Multiwave GO can digest 12 samples for EPA 3051 in as little as 18 minutes. Rotor 41HVT56 provides more than triple that throughput in just over twice the time. It’s a big upgrade for laboratories that need this kind of high sample throughput, easy–to-use vessels, and speed.”
With more upgrades and new products in the development pipeline, expect to see more innovations like this one from Anton Paar in the near future.
