Maximize Your Sample Prep Throughput: Understand the Latest in Rotor-based and Single Reaction Chamber Microwave Digestion Solutions

VIEW DEMO DESCRIPTION
Choosing the right digestion configuration is a key step in maximizing investment and expanding your lab’s capabilities.  During this presentation, we’ll review the differences between single reaction chamber (SRC) and rotor-based microwave solutions and explain how these differences impact your lab’s throughput. The Milestone ultraWAVE’s lack of vessel assembly/disassembly, disposable glass vials, ability to perform mixed-batch digestions and higher temperature and pressure capabilities allow the system to digest difficult matrices in minimal time, all while reducing labor and consumable costs. For labs interested in a rotor-based approach to digestion, the ETHOS UP with all-new MAXI-24 High Performance rotor can process large volumes of challenging samples in a single rotor-based platform. The MAXI-24 HP rotor rounds out Milestone’s rotor-based microwave solutions for acid digestion.

    Automated and Highly Accurate GC/MS Identification of Essential Oils, Cannabis, and Extractables/Leachables

    VIEW DEMO DESCRIPTION
    Conventional GC/MS hardware systems have advanced to a point today where >100 active compounds in a complex essential oil sample could be detected and analyzed in routine analytical laboratories. Other additional tools and capabilities have also been reported to further aid in the identification and analysis of such complex samples, including library searches, post-run deconvolution of co-eluting compounds, retention index match, and accurate mass identification. The complexity of samples from essential oils, flavors and fragrances, environmental and forensics studies combined with these useful but disconnected set of additional tools makes it tedious and time consuming to perform post-run data analysis, reviewing and reporting. As a result, it may take an analyst several hours to analyze the data from a 30-60min GC/MS run. We have developed GC/ID software to integrate all these aspects into a single easy-to-use package for GC/MS qualitative analysis. The integration of all the above mentioned tools has been shown to add isomeric identification to single quad GC/MS analyses and we will be demonstrating its application to the complex essential oils from flavor samples, cannabis and extractables/leachables.
