Well-known for its microwave-assisted digestion instruments, Anton Paar has now launched a laboratory hot block for the acid digestion, evaporation, and concentration of samples. Multicube 48 comes with pre-installed and customizable methods and complies with standard methods such as EPA 3010a, 3020b, 3050b, and 3060 for solid waste and EPA 200.2, 200.7, 200.8, 200.9, 245.1, and 365.1 for water. The new hot block combines an easy workflow and operation with Anton Paar precision. High temperature homogeneity of ±1°C over the whole block guarantees the same digestion quality for all samples. The disposable low-cost vials with lowest metal blanks eliminate the risk of external contamination.

The Multicube 48 vials can be used for weighing and digesting, storing digested solutions, and as volumetric flasks for filling up the samples to the appropriate volume. The vials are fully compatible with autosamplers for metal analysis by F-AAS, GF-AAS, ICP-OES, or ICP-MS.

Anton Paar has over 40 years of experience in developing sample preparation instruments and provides a broad portfolio of conventionally heated and microwave-assisted digestion instruments.
