ATS Scientific Inc. actively participated at the 59th ICASS and Spectr'Atom conference, held June 25-28th at the Grand Lodge, in Mont-Tremblant, QC. This was the first combined event for the Canadian based CSASS' annual ICASS (International Conference on Analytical Sciences and Spectroscopy) and the annual conference of Spectr'Atom, the Spectroscopy society based in France.
Along with being a conference exhibitor showing their many spectroscopic products, ATS staff presented two technical papers in both official Canadian languages on the new Milestone UltraWAVE laboratory microwave system.
ATS Scientific also provided an award for best student poster to PhD student Azza Habibi of IRSN (Institut de Radioprotection et du Surete Nucleaire) in Orsay, France. Her poster presentation showed the analysis of uranium and thorium in environmental samples by a combination of liquid chromatography and ICP-MS. The results obtained provide us with a better understanding of the properties of thorium. Excellent performance in terms of efficiency, accuracy and reproducibility were obtained, with protocols taking less than two hours. Applying this coupling technique to other radionuclides could be useful in the event of a nuclear accident. Pictured are Azza and Gilles Groulx of ATS Scientific at the conference banquet.

The new Milestone SynthWAVE is a true game changer for synthesis. Designed for safe, reliable and reproducible scale-up of microwave-enhanced chemical reactions, the SynthWAVE has the flexibility of performing single or multiple reactions at temperatures up to 300°C and pressures of 199 bar. Incredibly easy to use, the SynthWAVE allows the chemist to run large-scale batch and parallel reactions like never before. No longer do you have to worry about the reactants from one reaction vessel to another. This system allows chemists the flexibility of running multiple independent reactions simultaneously or the ability to use a variety of solvents, catalysts or reactants in a single microwave method.
Whether you are medicinal chemist in the pharmaceutical field or a materials chemist looking for the next big breakthrough in nanoparticle research, the SynthWAVE will change the way you approach your work!

NEW from Milestone is a Single Reaction Chamber Microwave Digestion Unit: UltraWAVE. With its small foot print it fits on most laboratory benchtops. Features 1500 W of power and a 1 litre capacity chamber
Through advanced design and engineering, Milestone has been able to reduce the size of SRC technology, resulting in a small benchtop unit that can fit in even the smallest lab. UltraWAVE digests up to 15 samples of any matrix simultaneously. No need to batch samples of the same type into separate runs. Eliminates labor associated with assembly/disassembly of digestion vessels—simply weigh the sample into a glass vial, add acid and place into the sample rack.
UltraWAVE is perfect for labs that have multiple sample types to digest, or for labs that simply want the convenience of SRC technology. The superior digestion quality and minimal blank contribution of the SRC makes UltraWAVE an ideal complement to ICP-MS. The UltraWAVE with SRC technology removes the limitations of conventional closed vessel systems and makes microwave digestion more effective and more efficient than ever before.

The ShaQuer from spex is a low cost solution for automating the agitation of six samples simultaneously as compared with the manual method of only two. The vigorous clamp movement results in improved extractions from samples such as fruit and vegetables. Every sample is handled in the same manner ensuring consistency and eliminating variations that can occur in manual sample prep. It also accommodates a variety of tube sizes and shapes.
