When a sample preparation technique calls for removal of compounds using SPE, it is standard practice to determine what concentrations will produce an acceptable linear range for the assay. Traditional linear regression is often performed manually using pipettes to generate an external standard curve that unknown samples are measured against.

• Solid-phase peptide synthesis (SPPS) is still often faced with challenges in the assembly of long and ‘difficult’ sequences, e.g. due to aggregation and steric hindrance giving rise to incomplete reactions. These problems have only partly been solved by new coupling reagents and solid supports.
• Precise microwave heating has emerged as one new parameter for SPPS, in addition to coupling
reagents, resins, solvents etc.

This work demonstrates the performance of automated solid phase extraction (SPE) for the extraction of PAHs from surface water sampled from a nearby pond containing some particulate. An automated system (Biotage® Horizon 4790) with Atlantic® DVB disks, following the requirements of method EN 16691, was used.

This application note describes the automated solid phase extraction (SPE) and GC/MS analysis of whole water samples according to EN16691 for PAHs.
Method EN 16691 is a recently developed method that uses solid phase extraction to isolate organic compounds from 1 L of water using a divinylbenzene (DVB) solid phase extraction disk.

Cyclosporine is an immunosuppressant used in organ transplants to overcome rejection. Following the transplant of a heart, liver, kidney or lung, a patient must be regularly tested for the rest of their lives. Blood testing intervals vary from 1 month to 6 months and this rapid reference method is ideal for batch tests with the advantage of no metabolite interfer-ence which is always found in immunological methods.

The removal of interferences and sample concentration are
essential steps in trace level detection of pesticides, sheep
dips, herbicides and PCBs in river water, wastewaters and
trade effluents. The following methods were developed by
the Environment Agency National Laboratory Service facility
at Nottingham using the Biotage RapidTrace for automated
solid phase extraction and the TurboVap II for evaporation.
The procedures are UKAS accredited and can reach detection
limits of 0.001 ug/Litre for some compounds.

EPA methods 8260 & 8270 cover the analysis of polychlorinated
dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated dibenzofurans
in ground & surface waters. This also now includes
1,4-dioxane and PCBs. This application note will focus on
the automated SPE of the sample rather than the detection
which usually involves GCMS or LCMS. NB The columns
and reagents used for soils and sediment analysis differ to
ground water extraction.

The extraction and segregation of Organic compounds from core samples taken from marine sediments is used to predict climate conditions, reconstruct sea temperatures and identify the type of vegetation from the C3 ( Temperate cli-mate) and C4 ( Tropical Climate) isotopic mass spectroscopy ratio analysis.

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) can be found in a number of water types, such as drinking water, surface water, ground water and wastewater. There are serval types of extraction techniques that can be implemented to remove them from water for measurement including liquid-liquid extraction (LLE), continuous liquid-liquid extraction (CLLE) and solid phase extraction (SPE). With LLE and CLLE there is little selectivity within the methods for difficult matrices or other compound interferences.

With the widespread clinical use of antidepressant drugs comes the need to accurately measure therapeutic lev-els to determine proper dosage, as well as check for toxic levels and patient compliance. More and more laboratories are shifting their therapeutic drug monitor-ing from liquid extraction to solid phase extraction. A large clinical laboratory has automated the process of extracting these drugs from serum using the RapidTrace SPE Workstation.

This study shows that the Biotage® 4790 Automated Extractor system, along with the Atlantic™ DVB disk, the DryDisk® separation membrane, and the DryVap® Concentrator System can be successfully used to analyze for Nonyl Phenol and Bisphenyl A in water samples. This sample preparation process is fully automated, requiring minimal human intervention, and allowing for reductions in sample processing costs.
