How can you benefit from the Multiwave 5000?

Multiwave 5000 is Anton Paar’s new microwave platform system. It has been designed with the experience of over 40 years in sample preparation to meet the needs of today’s lab chemist with:

  • A modern, easy-to-navigate user interface
  • Tool-free vessel handling
  • A large method library with >500 pre-installed programs
  • A global support network

It is the most versatile tool for efficient, convenient, and safe microwave-assisted analytical and synthetic chemistry.

The new software, including the customisable SmartScreen, provides the look and feel of a smartphone. With SmartLink, Multiwave 5000 connects to a computer, notebook, tablet, or mobile phone; it sends automated notifications or allows experiments to be monitored and operated remotely. It also visualises its status via SmartLight.

One system, endless possibilities

The new lightweight, compact Rotor 20SVT50 has been designed for the highest sample throughput for high-performance applications. The easy-to-handle, three-part vessels, employing SmartVent technology, handle more demanding samples which require higher temperatures, such as ceramics, alloys, polymers, cosmetics, geological materials, and petrochemicals.

For perfect reaction control, the new SmartTemp sensor conducts fast, optical temperature measurements. It offers the convenience of an IR sensor and the precision of an internal temperature sensor. SmartTemp has no direct contact with the sample solution, which rules out any possible contamination of the sample.

Due to the modularity of all components, the system can be expanded at any time and is therefore a future-proof solution which never runs out of options. The elaborate portfolio of rotors and accessories for special applications includes sample drying, evaporation of solutions, oxygen combustion, UV-assisted digestions, solvent extraction, or synthesis.
