SPE Disk Applications

Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) has been around for more than 20 years. Over the course of time it has become a well-accepted technology for the extraction of semi and nonvolatile analytes from environmental matrices such as drinking, ground and wastewater. SPE Disks, rather than cartridges, are a good choice when larger samples, such as those over 100 mL are used. When samples contain large amounts of particulate matter, disks provide an advantage in that the large surface area and small particle size allow the sample to flow through the solid-phase disk material more efficiently.

The SPE-DEX 4790 for semi and nonvolatiles and SPE-DEX 3100 for Oil and Grease analytes can help in the automation of the SPE, reducing the amount of solvent used, reducing labor and improving reproducibility.
