Standard Digestion Methods in Multiwave 5000

Numerous standard methods for microwave-assisted sample preparation exist for different sample categories. Besides well-known EPA methods one can find EN standards (for the European market), ASTM standards (mainly for the American market) as well as some national standards of local importance.


Great demands are made on standard methods such as reproducibility, usability for different kinds of matrices or practicability with commercially available means.

Early standard methods had mainly prescribed power programs, without feedback from the real course of the reaction. Modern standard methods overcome that limitation by defining performance criteria like pressure or temperature.

Though pressure feedback control allows for safe digestions, temperature feedback control is the most accurate control during digestion.
