Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) were once considered a safe group of chemicals. However, the detection of these compounds within our air, water, and soil has confirmed their place as persistent pollutants within nature and turned the tide of public opinion firmly against them.
As governments are spurred to take action, many sample preparation procedures have arisen for the most common PFAS compounds. Biotage understands the need for simple and robust sample preparation procedures and has a number of solutions which are designed to help you become compliant with the top regulatory methods around the world.
Environmental laboratories require a system which is clean, reliable, and affordable
to evaporate the extracts resulting from the preparation of samples for PFAS testing. This document will outline a protocol that was developed for the TurboVap® LV system to evaporate extracts in methanol to dryness consistent with typical environmental PFAS procedures.
Non-polar and weak anion exchange functionality combined together to extract strongly acidic analytes from aqueous samples through a dual, mixed-mode mechanism.
Non-polar polymeric (PS-DVB) phase for extraction of polar analytes from aqueous samples.
Sample processing manifolds: up to 10 or 20 SPE or filtration columns to be processed simultaneously under vacuum.
If you’ve been in the environmental arena as long as I have, seeing a “chemistry” term on the nightly news in conjunction with pollution is usually nothing to worry too much about. Sure, it’s an indicator that something bad has happened locally, but usually the news is a bit more…wild, than it needs to be and everything turns out just fine. After all, sensationalism is what gets the viewers!
How to streamline analysis, meet regulations and achieve laboratory compliance with solid-phase extraction.
Automated sample preparation reduces errors, improves method robustness and frees up laboratory personnel for other tasks.
Biotage evaporation systems are designed for fast solvent evaporation and minimizing sample transfer.
