New PAL System μSPE Cartridges

The PAL µSPE cartridge stands for a miniaturized and robust SPE technology that allows reliable automation and reduction of used sample and solvent without compromising performance. The µSPE has therefore emerged as a new standard for extraction, purification, concentration or filtration for automated environmentally friendly analysis processes.

 

The new PAL System µSPE cartridge consists of two parts. The polymer material used is chemically inert and free from leachables. The outer part (1) provides a higher capacity and flexible volume for filter disks (3) and the sorbent material (4). The bottom outlet is designed to penetrate pre-slit septa and to deliver directly to LC injection ports. The inner plunger (2) provides critical functionality with the compression of the sorbent/filter layers, and a precise needle guide for safe and upright transport. An essential feature is the ability to withstand high pressure and prevent leakage around the syringe needle, which allows for faster loading of larger sample volumes. Applications range from food pesticides, water, and drug analysis to forensic and pharmacological applications.

Key functionality:

  • Septumless cartridge desgin with patented sealing
  • High pressure rating (up to 10 bar)
  • Multiple elution’s supported
  • Sorbent capacity: up to 100 mg packing possible
  • Chemically inert materials used 
  • Free of extrables & leachables
  • Designed to penetrate pre-slit septa of vials
  • Desinged to elute directly into PAL System liquid injection ports

Characterization of the New PAL Micro-SPE Cartridge for Pesticides Extract Clean-up

Since more than ten years micro-SPE (µSPE) emerged as a micromethod for sample preparation and clean-up in food safety, proteomics, forensic, environmental and analysis. Applications are wide-ranging and cover drugs, environmental contaminants, and, in particular, the QuEChERS extract cleanup in multiresidue pesticide analysis. The automation of the µSPE sample preparation steps led to the desired increase in sample throughput, unification of the used sorbent materials for food commodities, and the potential for the online hyphenation with GC-MS and LC-MS instrumentation.

Fully Automated QuEChERS for Organochlorine and Organophosphate Pesticides in Tomato Juice and Red Wine

Using PAL Robotic Tool Change (RTC) system, a fully automated QuEChERS was developed for the extraction and clean-up of organochlorine and organophosphate pesticides from homogeneous samples. The automated QuEChERS workflow includes extraction with acetonitrile, salting out with
saturated sodium chloride solution and the clean-up with PAL μSPE prior to injection into the GC-MS/MS for analysis.

Advantages of automated and miniaturized µ-SPE clean-up in pesticides residues analysis

Recent developments in pesticides analysis extend the well-established methods to higher productivity and reliability while minimizing consumption and exposition to harmful chemicals. A workflow was developed that allows automatic preparation of calibration standards, automatic sample dilution, and automatic clean-up of sample extracts on one instrument, showing that miniaturized automated solutions are reducing errors, improving analytical consistency and protecting the environment in one convenient approach.
