Laboratories performing trace metals analysis today are challenged to process more samples at lower detection levels with
fewer available resources. Often the limitations of existing sample preparation approaches for metals analysis like excess
use of acids, safety and handling problems, inconsistent recoveries, and limited throughput create a "bottleneck" in productivity.
Milestone offers a complete suite of microwave sample prep productivity tools, backed by 20 years of industry experience and
an unmatched portfolio of over 50 patents to break these bottlenecks. Milestone, a world leader in microwave technology, is
known for providing safe, reliable, and flexible platforms that enhance the productivity of a metals testing lab. The key
to Milestone's technological leadership lies in bringing together individuals from diverse scientific and engineering disciplines
to solve real world problems with innovative microwave instrumentation.
Over 15,000 customers worldwide look to Milestone to improve their metals digestions, organic extractions, mercury analysis,
and synthetic chemistry processes. We partner with our customers to meet their challenges now and well into the future.
