Application Note: Automated reagents addition to enhance safety and efficiency in sample prep
28 February 2024

In recent decades, significant strides have been made in enhancing the productivity, quality, and safety of sample preparation processes, particularly by focusing on the digestion and extraction steps to improve efficiency. The advancements in microwave digestion and extraction systems have paved the way for addressing these aspects. However, certain aspects of the sample preparation workflow still possess room for improvement, such as acid supply, reagent addition, vessel handling, and cleaning. In this application note from Milestone, explore the critical tasks of adding concentrated acid into digestion vessels, and solvent systems into extraction vessels, processes that have traditionally relied on manual methods like pipettors, graduated cylinders and more.
