SCP Science has introduced an automated, high volume, microwave digestion system capable of digesting up to 300 samples per run with hands off operation. Coupled to automation, MultiVIEW can digest 12 samples per rack using up to 12 different methods to eliminate the need to run similar samples under the same method. Racks have a quick vessel change feature avoiding the bottleneck around preparing racks of samples.

Use of Quartz Vessels enables sample normalisation can be run in the calibrated transparent vessels once the sample is digested. Quartz Vessels are easy to clean and do not retain metals, as do their Teflon counterparts, eliminating the need to continually replace digestion vessels.

MultiVIEW with AutoLOADER systems have outer Kydex skins, triple Teflon-coated stainless-steel tunnel and Teflon coated metal parts throughout, providing protection against harsh acidic fumes. Multiple safety features are built into the instrument starting with the side-mounted door directed away from operator. Auto-venting of vessels is designed to vent away from operator. Multiple relays throughout the instrument turn off magnetrons in adverse conditions.

A 15’’ color touch screen interface provides simultaneous visibility of all operational parameters and digestion profiles. Users can watch 12 sample digestions occurring in real time and have the ability to modify the digestion parameters of any sample on the fly.
