The advent of microwave sample preparation has brought a new dimension to analytical methodology.
However, it is very important to bring this technology to the
laboratory incorporating as many safety features as possible.
Here are just a few of things you need to think about when using microwave radiation.

To report safety problems and request solutions please e-mail us . Please provide as detailed information about any safety problems with microwave laboratory equipment and situations as you can to permit a panel of world wide experts to evaluate and respond to your inquiry. The response will be in two forms. First if it is seen as significant and potential that others may have a similar need, a new case study will be created and posted here. If it is individual and uncommon then a specific reply may be returned to the individual sender or organization submitting the problem.
Please indicate if your name and location can be identified or if your identity is requested to be kept confidential by the SamplePrep Web research staff.
