Each person using these methods is responsible for taking the appropriate safety, health, and environmental protection measures. For further information, please refer to the respective operating instructions. The methods described here apply to the Multiwave 5000 and partly to its predecessor models. They are not transferable to other devices. Always follow the general procedure for unknown samples (e.g., start with a low sample weight, observe the reactivity of the sample with the digestion reagents). Note that the maximum achievable sample weight depends on the actual sample composition. Therefore, it may be significantly lower than specified in the method information for a given sample of the same name. Anton Paar GmbH (i) does not assume any warranty for test results based on the use of the operating instructions and (ii) does not assume any liability for damages resulting from the use of the operating instructions. Anton Paar GmbH accepts no liability in the event of improper use or processing contrary to the operating instructions and/or failure to comply with the relevant safety, health, and environmental protection measures and laws.
