Are you ready for state-mandated metals testing?  With state regulations coming to fruition across the country, cannabis testing labs are required to conduct trace metals analysis to ensure a safe and high-quality product for consumers.  This testing encompasses a wide variety of matrices, such as soils, fertilizers, plant material, edibles, concentrates and topicals.  Obtaining the high-quality analytical data that testing labs require first starts with the crucial step of sample preparation.

The Milestone ultraWAVE, equipped with state-of-the-art Single Reaction Chamber (SRC) technology, is uniquely suited for the demands of a busy and high-throughput lab environment. With twice the throughput of traditional systems, the ultraWAVE digests any mixture of samples simultaneously with disposable glass vials, offering labs new levels of user convenience, cost-efficiency and maximum productivity. The ultraWAVE delivers superior sample quality, too, ideal for state-mandated metals analysis.


Ultra-high performance

Direct temperature and pressure control of all samples provides complete digestion of both easy and difficult samples, from soil and flower, to edibles and concentrates.

Increased throughput

Delivers twice the throughput of traditional rotor-based microwave digestion instruments.  Vials with loose-fitting caps eliminate the time-consuming step of vessel assembly and disassembly.

No batching required

Any type of acids, any combination of sample types digested simultaneously.  Soil, flower, edibles and concentrates can be digested in a single run.

Lower operating costs

Disposable glass vials eliminate the cleaning step, and method development is virtually eliminated.
