High quality, reproducible results, especially for hard-to-recover analytes.
Application Area: Pharmaceutical USP <232><233>
"High quality, reproducible results, especially for hard-to-recover analytes like Hg (volatile). The One Touch Methods that come pre-programmed with the CEM application notes work 99% of the time, greatly reducing sample preparation development work."

Very versatile piece of equipment which requires low maintenance.
Application Area:Inorganic samples
"The MARS 5 microwave digester is very easy to set up. I can run 52 samples at one time and all the temperature and pressure will be automatically controlled."

Overall, good value for the money. I highly recommend service packages with purchase.
Application Area:Microwave assisted extraction of organics (drugs) from solid samples
"The MARS 6 was the most economical of the laboratory microwave ovens we reviewed. It has been a bit "quirky" with mid-run shutdowns, but it appears to have been solved by a software upgrade. I recommend the service package to any potential purchasers - our service technician was very helpful and prompt."

Application Area:Metals digestion water
"Microwave digestion at its finest. Quick and easy to use. Pre-set methods make it push and play for our lab. Product has a moderately high initial capital cost, but if taken care of, the product can last 10+ years. So it's a good investment. But it takes 8+ hour digestions down to about 30min-1 hour. "

"The MARS microwave reaction/digestion systems are well built, easy to use and have multiple built in safety features. Product support is excellent--either by "do-it yourself" research through the CEM website or through telephone and email conversations with highly knowledgeable staff. I recommend discussing your specific applications with CEM staff before purchasing to ensure all the appropriate components and accessories are included in the initial purchase order. "
