Milestone vision is to help chemists by providing the most technologically advanced microwave instrumentation for research and quality control. Milestone has been active since 1988 in the field of advanced microwave sample preparation. Franco Visinoni, the founder and CEO of Milestone Corp. (Italy), is the "chief dreamer" of the society, which is based on continuous innovation and technological improvement. In 1988 Franco Visinoni, who has an analytical chemistry background, conceived a microwave unit voted to excellence: MLS-1200 Standard. It could extremely reduce the sample preparation time thus offering quality and standardization of results. This is only the beginning step of a long and fruitful growing path. Milestone has now over thirty patents and more than 20.000 instruments installed worldwide covering large and small research institutions, as well as universities and industrial laboratories. It is the acknowledged industry leader in microwave technology. Milestone commitment is to consistently provide the scientific and industrial communities with the most effective, safest, and highest quality instrumentation for chemical applications. The excellent support of the skilled Milestone Application Team through all these years has highly contributed to the success of the Milestone instruments and of the company.
