Environmental Express has revolutionized the way laboratories think of metals digestions. With the Environmental Express HotBlock, laboratories can now perform digestions of samples under uniform temperature conditions up to 96 samples at a time. The HotBlock is made of a PTFE-coated graphite block within a Kydex housing with no exposed metallic parts reducing corrosion potential from the highly acidic environment. The HotBlock utilizes our disposable polypropylene digestion tubes for all EPA approved metals digestions, allowing laboratories to eliminate the washing of glassware. Our FilterMate filtration system for 15 ml and 50 ml sample volumes is designed to work within the same disposable digestion tube, eliminating the need to transfer filtered sample to an additional container and reducing waste in the lab. The introduction of our FlipMate 100 allows for the filtration of 100 ml sample volumes in our disposable polypropylene cups as well.
Automation of analytical steps in the laboratory is oftentimes key to a laboratory's overall success. With the introduction of the AutoBlock, Environmental Express has truly automated the metals digestion process. Users no longer have to manually add acid and reagents to samples, set timers to turn off heat, or manually adjust temperatures based on various method requirements. The AutoBlock comes pre-programmed with EPA approved methods and can even be programmed by the laboratory for their own specific needs. Three independent racks containing 18 samples each allow for up to three different digestion methods to be run at one time. All acid additions are hands-free and the AutoBlock will heat samples at desired temperatures for specific amounts of time. All of this is performed in a HEPA-filtered environment to reduce contamination potential.
Standards continue to be a large part of our business and we are proud to offer a wide variety for the metals lab. Whether it is a single-element standard, one of our multi-element standards, or a custom standard for your laboratory we can help. Let us offer you a quote based on your needs.
