The article focuses on microwave-acid digestion, a sample preparation method for atomic emission, atomic absorption, and metal analysis. It says that the use of strong acids and high temperature makes microwave digestion processes faster compared with hot plate digestion. PerkinElmer product manager Mike DiVito sees the technique as a complete way of inorganic sample preparation. It cites the Multiware ECO microwave system fro Anton Paar.
