Fast and High Accuracy Sample Digestion


  • Very rapid digestions (in minutes)
  • High Accuracy And Precision
  • Higher occupational safety
  • Reduced environmental impact
  • Cost-efficiency
  • High productivity and ease of automation

ColdBlock Digestion accelerates sample throughput, enhances efficiency and can inform critical operating decisions sooner. ColdBlock Digestion is versatile and can be used across mining, metals and alloys, environmental, food and agriculture industries where sample digestion is commonly employed.

The science behind ColdBlock allows us to prepare samples for analysis in a surprisingly short time. Digestions take less than 15 minutes and results are comparable with those from other, usually slower, digestion technologies. Coupled with the elimination of perchloric acid, and the overall reduction in the volume of acids needed makes ColdBlock a greener and safer technology.

From our initial evaluation, the ColdBlock digestion technology appears to hold tremendous potential. We were able to replicate ColdBlock’s results on our first attempt and since then have started to evaluate the technology for both partial and total digestions of geological media, the results of which are very encouraging.
