Frequently Asked Questions
TRANSFORM 680 and 800 Microwave Digestion Systemsare fully computer-controlled. The software is very user-friendly and features direct control and sensing of temperature with real-time graphic display, automatic data storage, unlimited method storage, and complete record of instrument parameters.
TRANSFORM Microwave Digestion System is a top-loading digester with safety interlocks. It is equipped with continuous temperature monitoring and automatic pressure release mechanism in oven cavity to avoid over-pressure. It also has rupture disks and vent detection mechanisms on each vessel which automatically shuts down power in response to over-pressure.
The TRANSFORM series of Microwave digestion systems has full compliance with EPA methods and includean on-line EPA protocols and methods directory. It is also highly flexible and open, allowing the programming of individual methods for customizable sample preparation and ensuring suitability in a very wide range of applications.
The TRANSFORM Microwave Digestion System is capable of simultaneously running up to 6 (MW 680) and 10 (MW 800) high-pressure closed vessels, providing a fast and automated method to digest even the most difficult samples. With simple one-step operation and full computer-control of temperature and power, this cost-effective microwave digester consolidates your Atomic Absorption (AA), ICP-AES, and CP-MS applications.
The TRANSFORM 800 offers higher sample throughput compared to the TRANSFORM 680. The similarities and differences between the two Microwave Digestion Systems are summarized in the table below.
