Excellent product, very useful for day-to-day applications!
Application Area: Environmental
"The equipment is easy to use and has wide application possibilities in a laboratory like ours, where a multitude of different methods are applied. The idea of monitoring the temperature in real-time allows us to have knowledge of the process that the samples follow and to be able to explain it for accreditation purposes. Finally, it is worth mentioning the flexibility that you have in the purchase of consumables and the excellent technical explanation that I received on the day of installation."

A good microwave that doesn't have a temp probe
Application Area:Analytical Chemistry
"I do really like this microwave. It eliminates the need for a temp probe but it is lacking a stir bar so shaking is required before putting your samples in the microwave. The programming is finicky but once you learn it's fairly easy."

Great and precise results. Pratical analysis.
Application Area:Analysis and separation
"Great product. I've been using the product for the past 15 years. Very helpful with extraction and digestion."

"The microwave was broken when it arrived and the 'consumables' are ridiculously expensive (the temperature probe at $800 has to be replaced yearly). Overall, I am not really happy with it."
The ETHOS EZ represents the state of the art in closed vessel microwave digestion. Unmatched build quality and technology has resulted in the safest, most versatile, and highest performing system available. Superior vessel design, combined with more precise temperature control and the most powerful software delivers better digestion results than any other closed vessel system - whatever the sample type.
Ethos EZ Design
The ETHOS EZ is the most technologically advanced and most rugged closed vessel microwave system available. Unlike other systems that are designed around an open steel frame inside a molded plastic cabinet, the ETHOS EZ features an 18/8 stainless steel cavity surrounded by a cabinet of solid 18/8 stainless steel, fitted with a heavy duty, spring mounted door for optimum operator safety and long operating lifetime. The door is hinged at the bottom to form a convenient loading platform. The door and cavity have a multi-layer PTFE plasma coating, applied at 350°C, with a 5 year warranty against corrosion.
Installed microwave power is 1200W which is delivered via a unique diffuser with mode stirrer which insures even distribution of microwave power, eliminating localized hot and cold spots. As a result, samples are heated evenly, giving a more consistent digestion.To achieve the shortest run times, fast cooling of the vessels is very important: in the EZ, a heavy duty cooling system draws a high airflow over the vessels and out to exhaust to minimize cool down time.
Unlike other systems, the user control electronics and user display have been moved out of the mainframe into a separate control module, protecting them from corrosion caused by acid vapor.
