Microwave Digestion of Different Food Samples in the same Microwave Run
A sample preparation method of food samples for elemental analysis is introduced below. Three different food samples, namely, flour, dried grapes and sugar, are digested using speedwave XPERT in high-pressure DAK-100 vessels with MultiTube liners in the same microwave digestion run. During the digestion, the reaction temperature and pressure are controlled via contactless insitu temperature sensor (OTC) and pressure sensor (OPC) to ensure efficient digestion.
