1. Ensure the temperature probe is compatible with the microwave model being used. Consult the manufacturer if there is any doubt.
2. Remove incompatible parts/consumables from the equipment operational area.
3. For accurate temperature measurements during a microwave run, the thermocouple needs to measure the temperature of the liquid phase during the run. The minimum liquid volume needed per 100 ml reaction vessel is stated as 5 ml acid by the manufacturer when using a compatible thermocouple in an EasyPrep sample vessel.
4. Consider use of the exhaust acid/organic vapor sensor for unattended microwave runs.
