Milestone was founded in 1989, to provide chemists around the world with advanced microwave platforms on which to accelerate all their sample preparation requirements. Today, with a global installed based of more than 11,000 systems—covering 70% of Fortune 500 companies, as well as large and small research institutions, universities, and laboratories—we have made a substantial contribution to the capabilities of the modern laboratory.
Since the beginning, the breadth of our microwave technology has expanded to support a broad range of techniques, including microwave-accelerated digestion, extraction, ashing, and synthetic chemistry, as well as instrumentation for clean chemistry and mercury analysis.
Our Technological Edge
At Milestone, our advantage lies in the talented people who design and support our lab instruments. Our team of expert chemists and engineers work closely together to solve real-world problems with innovative microwave instrumentation. This operating philosophy has enabled Milestone to develop an unmatched portfolio of patents, and an extraordinary range of microwave systems with superior performance capabilities and maximum user safety.
Our support of your applications extends far beyond the included documentation. Our technicians and Ph.D. chemists are available to help you get the most out of your Milestone labstation, from operational tips to method development.
