For more than 30 years, microwave heating has successfully been applied towards sample digestion, streamlining the workflow of elemental analysis. Legacy microwave systems improve throughput by parallel processing of large sample batches, while recent designs enable fast, sequential digestion of individual samples in a compact instrument footprint.

In this webinar we will discuss how a unique, compact and affordable microwave design addresses the limitations of existing microwave instruments, by eliminating consumable costs, simplifying handling steps, and enabling processing of mixed sample batches with high masses. Application examples from the environmental, food and chemical industries will illustrate the benefits of applying the unique Directed Multimode Cavity (DMC) microwave heating process towards sample digestion.
