Automated SPME: Extraction and Method Development Options with the PAL RTC and RSI
This application note highlights the versatility of the PAL System platform for performing different SPME experiments
Determination of contaminating fragrances in fish by PAL SPME Arrow and GC-MS/MS
A method for the quantitative analysis of 9 polycyclic and nitro musk fragrances from fish samples by PAL SPME Arrow and GC-MS/MS has been developed.
A Comparison of ITEX Dynamic Headspace–GC/MS to other Enrichment Techniques for Analysis of Flavoring Compounds
The automated ITEX Dynamic Headspace unit demonstrated equivalent accuracy and precision when compared to purge and trap and overall was more sensitive than the other enrichment techniques. The ITEX unit allows for automated analysis and optimization of conditions which drastically reduces analyst’s time when compared to performing the experiments manually with the purge and trap without any reduction in sensitivity, accuracy and reproducibility.
Analysis of volatile compounds from honeys to differentiate plant and geographical origins
The analysis of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is a faster approach to identify the honey’s origin than traditional methods, which is important for the quality control of honeys. In-tube extraction dynamic headspace (ITEX-DHS) is a fully automated microextraction technique, in which the enrichment of analytes takes place by repeated aspiring and dispensing of the sample headspace through a sorbent trap
