The Dionex ASE 150/350 systems improve productivity by using a
combination of elevated temperature and pressure to increase the
efficiency of the extraction process. The result is faster extraction times
with a significant reduction in solvent use when compared to traditional
extraction techniques such as Soxhlet or sonication. Other extraction
techniques can take up to 48 hours per sample while the Dionex ASE
150/350 system extractions are typically performed in 12–20 minutes.
Solvent consumption is reduced by 50–90% when compared with
traditional extraction techniques.
