Milestone´s unique Single Reaction Chamber (SRC) technology overcomes the limitations of all conventional microwave sample preparation systems:
- High performance
- Higher sample throughput
- Improved workflow
- Lower labor
- Lower consumables costs
At the hearth 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.
