The World’s First Automated Extraction and Recovery Process for Microplastics Analysis
Release of the MAP-100 Automatic Microplastics Pretreatment Unit
Shimadzu Corporation announced the release of the MAP-100 automatic microplastics pretreatment unit. This product is the first in the world to automate the process of extracting and collecting microplastics in oceans, rivers, lakes, and other water in the environment.
Before instrumental microplastic analysis, it is essential to remove contaminants and substances that adhere to surfaces. Replacing the troublesome, mainly manual process of pretreatment with a specialized unit increases operational efficiency, improves the quality of preprocessing results, ensures stable reproducibility, and results in safer handling of samples.
