Accelerated solvent extraction is a high-temperature and high-pressure extraction technique that is widely used in environmental, chemical, and food analysis. Discover a truly new technology that has pushed accelerated solvent extraction to the next level. For the first time, a true walkaway, sample-to-vial system is available which brings tremendous improvements to processing solid and semi-solid samples for POPs analysis, making the lab more productive and reducing costs.
In this presentation, we discuss a new parallel extraction protocol for pursuing extractions in gas-assisted extraction mode followed by quantitation for persistent organic pollutants (POPs). We present here performance data of the new method for analyte extraction and evaporation in the same platform from soil samples for different POPs (dioxins, furans, and PCBs). Unlike traditional methods such as liquid-solvent extraction followed by N2 stream evaporation, the fully automated solvent extraction and evaporation system saves time, solvent, and labor, while ensuring high reproducibility and productivity for analytical testing.
Key Learning Objectives:
Improve your sample preparation process with a more efficient way of extracting organic compounds from solid samples
Discover a true, walk-away sample to vial workflow which will allow you and your team to accomplish more important tasks in your lab.
See how combining and automating the extraction and evaporation process while processing 4 samples in parallel provides you with better efficiency and productivity
