Abstract

In chemical laboratories, digesting and stripping samples in acid such as Aqua Regia (a mixture of hydrochloric and nitric acids) can be performed by a robot, but certain commercial robots are not capable of keeping a sample below the surface of the acid during digestion. The immerser described herein can solve this problem.
