High-throughput Acid Digestion or Leaching of Soil Samples

Laboratories performing environmental trace analysis of toxicologically and environmentally relevant elements have an ever increasing demand for robust and easy-to-use acid digestion or leaching of soil, sludge and fly ash samples. With Rotor 41HVT56 the SMART VENT technology was taken to a new level of high throughput for environmental samples.


Routine digestion and leaching of soil samples as well as other environmental samples like sediments, fly ash, sludges etc. are among the most used applications in environmental chemistry. By adding the Rotor 41HVT56 with 41 positions for HVT vessels to the Multiwave PRO platform system the throughput was raised to a new level. The concept of SMART VENT technology allows the HVT56 vessels releasing reaction gases at a controlled pressure. So the robustness of the sample preparation method is increased.


The digestions were carried out in HVT56 vessels using Rotor 41HVT56 in Multiwave PRO. The digested solutions were measured with an Agilent 7500ce ICP-MS using He as collision gas to suppress polyatomic interferences.
