Microwave Digestion System
MARS 6

Better digestions
for better analyses

Now with iWave & iLink
 

Overview

For over 30 years chemists have trusted CEM to provide the highest quality microwave digestion systems for their laboratories. The MARS 6™ is simply the easiest to use, safest and most intelligent system on the market. It is the only system that uses integrated sensor technology to recognize the vessel type as well as the sample number then apply the appropriate amount of power to ensure the highest quality digest. With options for remote system control and contactless all vessel temperature control, the MARS 6 is ready to handle your most difficult samples.

Features

  • Contactless in-situ temperature measurement
  • Sensors that detect vessel type and count
  • Hundreds of preprogrammed methods
  • Easy to use vessels for every application

Applications for Microwave Digestion – Sample Preparation

One-Touch Technology

The intelligent way to prepare your samples.

CEM has built in to every MARS 6 the experience of over 30 years of preparing samples. One Touch is like having a CEM chemist at your side. One Touch Technology features the industries only vessel recognition and counter sensors. This information is fed to the onboard computer which then selects the exact digestion conditions required for the sample load and vessel type. One Touch also has more than 100 pre programmed methods, including all USEPA methods, as well as on board tutorial videos. With One Touch you simply choose your method and the system does the rest. Relax.... You have One Touch.

Ultra High Pressure and Temperature Digestion Vessels

Vessels

The most advanced vessels ever made.

CEM manufactures a wide variety of vessels to meet the temperature and pressure conditions required to completely digest your samples. All CEM vessels are manufactured from materials that are microwave transparent and focus all of the energy to your samples. The open architecture design provides for rapid cooling without the need for special accessories. From high throughput to high pressure CEM has the right vessel for the task at hand.

Temperature Control for Microwave Digestion - iWave

iWave Temperature Sensors

The accuracy of fiber optic temperature measurement without the probes.

iWave is a contactless in-situ temperature sensor that provides the same accuracy afforded by fiber optic probes. Using wireless iWave technology the sample is being measured, and not the vessel. With the ability to accurately monitor each individual sample you get the best control of the digestion process possible and you can create a report that validates that each individual sample reached the proper temperature.
