In the few years since its introduction, solid phase microextraction (SPME) has become a practical alternative for sample preparation for gas-chromatography. SPME reduces the time required for sample preparation and eliminates the use of large volumes of extraction solvents.
Now different SPME fibers are available from the manufacturer of the CombiPAL. The PAL SPME Fiber assortment and the range of applications will be constantly expanded and developed. All PAL SPME fibers have a standard length of 10mm length and the core material is Fused Silica.
The new PAL SPME fibers are now available From Aquilant Scientific (Presearch).
Fiber Collection – Development Kit (1 Fiber of each Fiber Type | Set of 5 )
All PAL SPME Fibers have a standard length of 10 mm and the core material is Fused Silica.
The PAL SPME Fibers can be used for a wide range of GC and injector models.
The PAL SPME Fiber assortment and the range of applications will be constantly expanded and developed.
The PAL COMBI-xt and PAL RTC/RSI provides a fully automated SPME sample preparation process. All movements of the SPME fiber from precondition, adsorption and desorption are precisely controlled for optimum performance.
In order to implement the SPME technique with the above a dedicated kit is required for the PAL Systems, (PAL SPME Upgrade). Please contact us about the kits required. An Agitator has to be part of the PAL System configuration. This allows performing the analysis temperature control;agitation also allows speeding up of the equilibration process.
A second optional module is the SPME Fiber Conditioning Station (PAL and PAL-xt Systems) or the SPME Fiber Conditioning Module for the PAL3 System. The conditioning station has two functions. The first function is the cleaning (bake-out) of the inserted fiber after the analytical process to prepare for the next analysis. The second function is to condition a spare fiber in an inert gas phase. This module is strongly recommended since it will help to protect the GC injection port from contamination and free up the port after thermal desorption.
