Microwave Extraction System
Discover Prep

Rapid extraction for every sample.

 

Overview

The Discover Prep™ utilizes microwave technology to extract your desired analyte from a variety of sample types. Rapid heating to the desired extraction temperature, coupled with rapid cooling, ensure a quick and efficient extraction each and every time. Complete control over each individual sample means every extraction is held at the optimal temperature just long enough and then the next sample is processed, maximizing productivity and the power of microwave energy.

Features

  • Rapid Results
  • Run a Variety of Sample Types in a Single System
  • Small Footprint
  • Automate up to 48 Samples

Microwave Technology

Microwave Technology

Efficient and fast extraction.

The Discover Prep’s microwave cavity provides a true internal temperature reading and in-situ stirring that allows for efficient microwave extraction. The Discover also has a rapid cooling mechanism, which allows for the safe handling of the sample mere minutes after the extraction.

Automation Options

Automation Options

Automate up to 48 samples.

Auto samplers for the Discover Prep are available in 12 and 48 position modules, providing full automation that is ideal for high-throughput labs.

Flexible

Flexible

Extract many different sample types with only one instrument.

The Discover Prep can be used for the quick and easy extraction of a variety of samples, including but not limited to:
  • Polymers
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Consumer Products
  • Nutraceuticals
  • Cosmetics
  • Academic Testing

Compact

Compact

Its small size is a big advantage.

The Discover Prep, including the autosampler is only 14 inches wide. That’s about the width of an analytical balance. Take up minimum bench top space and add efficiency, even when including the autosampler.

The Process

The Process

Safe and simple to a complete extraction.

Load Autosampler
Prepared 10 or 35 mL vials containing samples, extraction solvent, and stir bars can be loaded onto the 12- or 48-position autosampler, allowing for automated reaction handling and throughput.

Select a Method
Select the desired method, program the number of samples, and press “Play”.

Microwave Energy is Applied
The reaction vial is pressurized and microwave heating is applied to the vial contents. This results in direct molecular activation and fast and efficient heating. Electromagnetic stirring ensures equal heat distribution and reaction homogeneity.

iWave Feature Controls Temperature
iWave® technology allows for accurate temperature monitoring of the vial contents, regardless of sample type or solvent volume.

Compressed Air Cools to Allow for Safe Handling
Upon method completion, compressed air cooling is applied, enabling rapid cooling for safe handling and preparation for analysis.
