Will it Digest? Episode 3: Army Man



October 8, 2015

Have you ever wondered how the world around us is scientifically analyzed? From food to fuel, the key is preparing the sample. In this episode, we were given the challenge to turn a toy army man into a clear liquid. Toy testing is a hot topic and sample preparation is vital to reliable data. Do you think we can do it? Enjoy. CEM helped pioneer the field of microwave-enhanced chemistry and many official methods were developed by chemists using CEM systems. That’s why more chemists trust CEM microwave sample preparation systems than any other system available for microwave digestion. Microwave sample preparation is a proven technique that has been utilized for many years for a wide variety of sample types for elemental analysis by ICP, ICP-MS, or AA. Acid digestion is employed to break down the sample matrix leaving the elements of interest in solution and ready for analysis. CEM microwave digestion systems rapidly break down a wide variety of sample matrices leaving behind a clear solution containing the analytes of interest. What would you like us to turn into a clear liquid? Leave your suggestions in the comment section and we will attempt it!
