TOPwave – Sample preparation at the highest level

TOPwave is a versatile system offering a variety of digestion vessels, fulfilling all requirements of modern applications. Its innovative design combines highest operating comfort with maximum safety and performance. The different vessel types are made of a high performance fluoropolymer, which means long lifetime and few consumables. This intelligent vessel design minimizes subsequent costs and simplifies the handling. All vessel types can be opened and closed by hand, without any tools. An optional evaporation unit can be used for sample concentration.


  • Microwave-assisted pressure digestion
  • Ensures maximum operational safety thanks to the Self Check System
  • Intelligent design for straightforward operation and safety
  • High sample throughput
  • Documents all digestion parameters of each sample
  • Features intuitive operation
  • Minimum number of consumables

The system works with an innovative sensor concept. All sample temperatures as well as the internal pressures are measured and displayed individually and in real time. No immersed probes or mechanical sensors are used – the system uses optical measurement principles. No sensors must be installed, connected, cleaned or replaced – handling is further simplified and consumables are eliminated.


TOPwave is equipped with a touch screen controller for reaction control and data handling. The SMART algorithm monitors all parameters and adjusts the microwave power accordingly.

Various pre-installed applications are available, a list of favourite applications contains up to twelve frequently used programs. A nearly unlimited number of user-defined applications can be stored.

The software can be operated intuitively, offers remote operation via a network connection, and includes six languages. An internal memory can be used for data storage, USB and Ethernet ports allow data export.
