ColdBlock is the first and only sample digestion technology that uses focused short-wave infrared heating and a cooling zone to dissolve solid sample matter into solution for multi-element analysis.

A superior alternative to conventional digestion technologies with:

– digestions completed in minutes

– the same accuracy and precision

– greater safety and simplicity.

ColdBlock Technologies’ digestion technology — the first and only sample digestion technology that utilizes focused short-wave infrared heating and a cooling zone to dissolve solid sample matter into solution for multi-element analysis.  A superior alternative to conventional digestion sampling technologies — digestions are completed in minutes, with the same accuracy and precision as traditional methods, with greater safety and simplicity.

SPEED

What would a reduction in digestion time from hours to minutes do for your lab workflow and productivity?

Digestions using ColdBlock have an average cycle time of 10-40 minutes, significantly faster than microwave or hot plate. Bulk handling of samples (load/unload) adds further efficiency.

SIMPLICITY

ColdBlock can be set up by a single person in less than 30 minutes. Simple software controls make it possible to save and reuse multiple digestion methods.

Maintenance and cleaning requirements are less than 10 minutes per week.

SAFETY

ColdBlock eliminates the need for hazardous perchloric acid. Safe open-air operation within a vent hood requires no pressurization.

A cooling zone allows for safer handling of test tubes. No time-consuming pressurization/ depressurization steps are required.

SAVINGS

Shorter digestion, faster throughput and shorter cycle time leads to a significant increase in lab productivity.

Customers report a 10-30% reduction in costs compared to hot block and microwave sample digestion methods.
