Sample Digestion in Minutes

ColdBlock™ Digestion is an innovative sample digestion technology that delivers a new performance standard for laboratories serving the mining, metals and alloys, environmental, food and agriculture industries. It is a superior alternative to conventional technologies used by laboratories to determine precious and base metal concentrations in samples from their mining operations.

ColdBlock offers a suite of products to suit the sample digestion needs of today’s modern laboratory. The modular design of the 12- and 15-channel units allow for customization of the sample digestion process depending on the required throughput.

Greener Sample Digestion Technique Offering Greater Accuracy

ColdBlock’s sample digestion technology relies on short-wave infrared radiation to target sample particles directly.  Workplace safety is elevated as ColdBlock Digestion eliminates or minimizes the use of perchloric or hydrofluoric acid as part of the digestion process.

Countertop units available to the global market are capable of processing both small and large sample sizes. ColdBlock™ Digestion Technology is simple and easy to install. It can be installed by a ColdBlock representative, a distributor representative or directly by the purchaser.

ColdBlock Digestion products are available globally with major distributors in North America, Europe, Asia/South-East Asia, India, Middle East, South America, New Zealand, and Australia.
