What is Sample Digestion?

Understanding the elemental composition of sample materials can be difficult, if not impossible, without first converting them into a format that is compatible with specific modes of analysis. Optical Emissions Spectrometer and Mass Spectrometer systems, for example, can provide valuable insights into what elements are present in a myriad of different sample types; provided they
