The one microwave digestion system for your analytical laboratory

Specifically designed for routine sample preparation, the MARS One provides laboratories with an economical alternative to higher priced systems. The MARS One incorporates many of the same features found in our world-class MARS 6 platform, and provides rapid processing of one to twelve samples.   


Featuring the Xpress Vessel and New Lightweight Turntable

The patented MARS Xpress vessel revolutionized sample preparation a decade ago. A simple three-piece design with vent and reseal technology ensures complete digestions for a variety of sample types.

  • Lightweight 12-position all Tefl on turntable (weighs < 4 kg)
  • Two vessel sizes: 55 and 75 mL volume
  • Vent-and-seal technology for larger sample sizes
  • Run a single sample or up to 12 simultaneously
  • Open architecture promotes fastest cooling




RUGGED DESIGN - 316 solid steel cavity with multi-layered Tefl on coating, impact and acid resistant polymer shell

EASE OF OPERATION – Choose a pre-existing method or simply program time and temperature

PRECISE POWER DELIVERY - Superior waveguide technology

VERSATILITY – Accommodates one to twelve vessels


TOUCH SCREEN CONTROLLER Large 7-inch (800 x 489) glass capacitance LCD screen

XPRESS VESSEL TECHNOLOGY The most popular vessel in the world - two sizes: 55 and 75 mL

LIGHTWEIGHT TURNTABLE - Corrosion-proof, contamination proof construction; weighs less than 5 kg (11 lb.)

COMPLETE REACTION CONTROL Controls up to 12 vessels using a contactless IR sensor


IDENTIFICATION SENSOR – Allows precise power input of even one sample identifies proper vessels for use in the MARS One

REACTIGARD SECURITY Automatically shuts off power if a disturbance is detected during a run

Touchscreen                                          7” (800 x 480) TFT-LED glass capacitive touchscreen display

Ports                                                       1 USB, 1 USB-B

Turntable Design                                   PerfectCircle™ design provides absolute radial symmetry.

Microwave Cavity                                  Heavy-duty, multi-layer Tefl on® coating

Electrical Requirements                       200/208/230 VAC (200-253 VAC), 60 Hz, 15A @ 230 VAC

                                                                220/240 VAC (202-250 VAC), 50 Hz, 15A @ 240 VAC

Magnetron Frequency                          2450 MHz

Power Output                                      1200 W Magnetron

Safety Features                                   Three independent door safety interlocks, including an interlock monitoring system plus three                                                                      independent thermal switches, are used in each instrument to prevent instrument operation and                                                                  microwave emissions in case of improper door closure or misalignment. The instrument complies                                                                with HHS standards under 21 CFR, Part 1030.10, Subparts (C)(1), (C)(2) and (C)(3).                                                                                  Reactiguard continuously monitors the cavity and disables the magnetron if disturbances occur                                                                  inside the cavity.

Emissions and Safety Approvals      Conforms to Globally Harmonized EN61010-1 Standard for Safety Requirements for Electric                                                                       Equipment for Measurement, Control, and Laboratory Use Part 1: General Requirements                                                                             (CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 1010.1-1992).
