CEM’s MARS 6 brings intelligence and ease-of-use to microwave sample preparation with a combination of features and capabilities. The system has a large, high-resolution, color touchscreen interface that allows users to control the system and watch the included training videos. Proprietary One Touch software and sensor technology reduces system programming to simply selecting a method that matches the sample type. Dual magnetrons deliver 1800 W of power, which is controlled by the system’s patented PowerMAX technology. PowerMAX ensures that an optimum amount of microwave energy is constantly delivered to the sample to ensure fast, complete digestions. The microwave unit features the highest temperature and pressure capabilities for the most difficult matrices. There are several available configurations and temperature and pressure control options, as well as a variety of vessels, including sets that run up to 40 samples simultaneously, making the system suited for both routine and difficult samples.
