Microwave digestion is a technique used to dissolve heavy metals in the presence of organic molecules prior to analysis by other instruments. Microwave digestion presents several advantages over open digestion, such as:

  • Reduced time
  • Better control over reaction
  • Extraction efficiency
  • Loss of volatile elements is prevented
  • Reduced risk of contamination

CEM MARS 6 Microwave Reaction System

Over 30 years of expertise on microwave technology has contributed to the development of this model. The MARS 6 has one of the most advanced software available in the field, providing the operator a fast and convenient method of carrying out the reaction. Moreover at 1800 watts, the MARS 6 has a more powerful delivery than other systems, conferring efficiency to our testing services.
