LabTech offers a complete range of DigiBlock digestion systems to fit any customer need. The DigiBlock heating surface is made of graphite or aluminum alloy protected by PTFE coating and can accommodate as many as 54 graduated tubes and operates from room temperature up to 450°C. The DigiBlock complies with the highest international standards to perform EPA approved methods. The DigiBlock use low cost, disposable digestion tubes to speed up. The LabTech PP digestion tubes contain no detectable background contaminants and do not require washing with acids prior the use. Different sizes and disposable tubes are available to meet any laboratory needs.
Quality, productivity and efficiency in metal sample prep
Digestion in labs has many faces. One of the most common is digestion of metals. Sample preparation is also widespread. Procedures take approximately 85% of the time associated with atomic spectroscopy analysis, where quality of the sample, ease of use and speed are key factors. An excellent solution to accomplish these tasks is the 8-unit strong LabTech DigiBlock line. 4 out of the eight models are “ITOUCH” versions that are supplied along with a practical controller (connected to the main unit via a 2-meter long cable) that can be mounted on any metallic surface (e.g. outside a laminar flow) that allows to control the entire sample digestion process. Acid digestion of organic samples produces gaseous from products that affect closed digestion vessels. Samples of several grams are needed in a variety of applications to have a more representative portion of large sample bulk or to compensate limitations in the sensitivity of analytical instruments.
