Anton Paar Multicube 48 – trendsetting open-vessel digestion

Multicube 48 is a robust laboratory hot block for open-vessel acid digestion, evaporation and concentration of samples, as well as other applications requiring elevated temperatures.

Multicube 48 open-vessel acid digestion

The PFA-coated graphite block in its corrosion-resistant FEP-coated housing is designed for reliable, trouble-free preparation of large batches of a wide range of samples. Precise temperature control of ±1°C guarantees the same digestion quality in every single vessel. Intuitive software and comprehensive documentation make Multicube 48 an excellent, cost-efficient instrument for digestion and leaching of food, environmental, petroleum, geological, and many more samples.

Key features

High throughput – to optimise productivity in your lab

  • Simultaneous digestion of 48 samples
  • Vials rest in racks for simplified loading and fast removal for cooling after digestion
  • 800W power ensures short heating times
  • 450 days continuous runtime – no waste of valuable working time due to cooling down or heating up in-between
  • To speed up your working cycle, an audio notification indicates process end and readiness for the next sample batch.

Complete digestion or leaching – accurate temperature control ensures the best preparation for the subsequent analysis

  • High temperature homogeneity: ±1°C over the whole block
  • Digestion temperatures up to 180 °C
  • Optional temperature control with immersing Pt100 probe in a sample solution for sensitive samples
  • Complies with standard methods such as EPA 3010a, 3020b, 3050b, and 3060 for solid waste and EPA 200.2, 200.7, 200.8, 200.9, 245.1, 365.1 for water.

Perfect reflux conditions – to minimise loss of digestion solution and analyte

  • Polypropylene watch glasses cover the vials during the reaction
  • Temperature adjustment in 0.1°C steps to obtain the optimal working point
  • Saves reagents and reduces acid evaporation.

Easy interaction – intuitive software and colour touchscreen

  • Multicube 48 is controlled via the separate Multicube Control unit, connected with a 3m long cable. You can place the controller away from the hot block so you can avoid direct contact with acid vapours during the digestion process
  • Modern capacitive 5.4” colour touchscreen that withstands scratches and wear and is easy to operate – even with lab gloves
  • Three options to reach your final digestion temperature: heating ramp, heating as fast as possible, or a stepwise profile of up to ten temperature steps
  • Visualisation of the set temperature profile, the measured temperature, the remaining process time, and the already lapsed time

Comprehensive documentation – to meet your GLP requirements

  • Storage capacity of up to 100 methods (incl. pre-installed international standard methods and recommended Anton Paar methods)
  • Data storage of up to 100 experiments
  • Export via USB port as .rtf and .csv files
