Acids destroy metals
This law of chemistry is why robotic sample digestion systems haven't existed, until now. Through years of trial and error, part
by part, we developed acid-resistant robots out of plastic. Super durable plastic robots may sound futuristic but automation is
long overdue, in our industry and in your lab. Every business has grown more competitive, especially sample testing. Labs
need higher output, at a lower cost-per-analysis. Questron's Vulcan is the answer.
Manufacturer of durable, long-lasting acid digestion equipment. We provide analytical laboratories, interested in metals analysis, with innovative and complete solutions for their sample preparation needs. Since the early 1990’s, Questron has been at the forefront of design for microwave, block and automated block digesters, microwave ashing and automated dispensing/diluting equipment. Questron supplies worldwide in the mining, agriculture, environmental, and food industries. Questron’s team of experienced engineers and application specialists provide customized designs to accommodate customer’s special and unique sample prep needs.
Today, Questron is committed to offering products that benefit science and its history of innovation and cooperation. Questron’s QLabPro closed vessel microwave digestion systems, QAsh 1800 microwave ashing system, QBlock digestion system and Vulcan series of automated digestion & work-up station are all examples of innovation through specialized knowledge and experience.
About Questron promises to listen to the suggestions and concerns of its customers and partners and provide innovative, reliable instrumentation that solves the ever evolving needs of automating the sample preparation process.

ICP Analysis, also known as ICP Testing, is practiced to identify and measure a range of chemical elements which is necessary for the analysis of metal samples.
Elemental Analysis is a systematic process where a sample of a material is digested and analyzed to find it’s isotropic and elemental composition. Elemental Analysis is both Qualitative and Quantitative.
Elemental analysis requires sample preparation and digestion by acids or microwave digestion which Questron Technologies automates for laboratories all across the world.
ISO 9001:2015 specifies requirements for a quality management system when an organization:
a) needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and
b) aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
All the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 are generic and are intended to be applicable to any organization, regardless of its type or size, or the products and services it provides.

Questron’s headquarters is located in Toronto in the midst of the Canadian manufacturing heart land. Questron is dedicated to innovating and implementing microwave and heating block technologies for science and the environment. Since its first beginnings in 1989, Questron continues to focus on designing and manufacturing reliable and automated laboratory solutions. Questron was the first company to introduce pressure and temperature controls for closed vessel microwave digestion applications. And in 1993, Questron produced the QWAVE 3000, the first computer-controlled microwave digestion system. Questron is also the first company to offer a completely automated block digestion system. The Vulcan digestion and work station completely automates the sample digestion process commonly used for metals and mercury sample preparation.
