Robust and cost-effective. A major improvement on the previous MARS 5.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area: Digestion of ore and mining process samples

"The CEM MARS 6 digesters (microwave) are robust, cost-effective, and successful solution for our lab to perform complete digestions on mining related minerals and process samples. We are currently using 4 of these digesters and have found them to be a major improvement from the previous MARS 5. These digesters allow our lab personnel to quickly and effectively digest process and R&D samples in support of our mining company, Freeport-McMoRan Inc."

A 5-star product by a great manufacturer.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Mineral ore digestion

"MARS 6 Digestors are a vast improvement on the earlier MARS 5 systems manufactured by CEM. The touch screen app-based GUI is great for ease of use and training and makes for quick diagnosis of methods. A 5-star product by a great manufacturer."

High quality, reproducible results, especially for hard-to-recover analytes.
Rating: 5.0

  • 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."

Overall, good value for the money. I highly recommend service packages with purchase.
Rating: 4.0

  • 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."

Time saver!
Rating: 3.7

  • 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. "

  • Application Area:Sample Digestion For Metals Analysis By ICP

"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. "

The MARS System can be configured for organic and inorganic synthesis with a variety of vessel choices and turntable options. Both open and closed vessel reactions can be run in this multimode system, which can also accommodate accessories such as condensers and reflux glassware. Efficient microwave power delivery (programmable up to 1600 watts) and CEM's advanced, proprietary vessel designs ensure controllable, reproducible reactions up to 100 times faster than conventional thermal heating. All MARS Systems are constructed of solid, high-grade, stainless-steel with a cavity that is multi-layer Teflon® coated to resist corrosion.
  • Reduce reaction times
  • Increase yields
  • Improve purities
  • Pathway simplification
  • Perform open vessel or pressurized reactions!
