In this presentation from an 'Advances in Enviromental Analysis eSeminar' hosted by Separation Science in collaboration with PerkinElmer, Lee Marotta (PerkinElmer, USA) describes some environmentally friendly techniques for semi-volatile analysis that can also improve lab profitability and productivity.
The ability to improve detection limits in the determination of toxic semi-volatile compounds such as polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and pesticides is desirable to protect public health. There are several techniques employed including very sensitive Mass Spectrometry (MS) tools and innovative injection techniques to enhance the detection of these compounds.
Taking advantage of these new tools and methodologies, laboratories have the ability to reduce the sample size needed to meet and/or exceed the detection limit criteria in semi-volatile analysis. Laboratories can enjoy increased profitability from the reduction in the extraction solvent required and from the reduction in shipping and storage costs. Also, using this enhanced method, laboratory productivity will increase.
