In this application note, a suite of neutral and list 1 pesticides in methylene chloride is evaporated using the Biotage® DryVap.
Pesticides containing many different functional groups, including sulfur and phosphorus groups, halides, nitramines, atrazines, alcohol, and carbonyl groups were efficiently concentrated for GCMS analysis.
This data indicates that the DryVap System is inert and effectively manages solvent evaporation without generating localized hot spots in the system.

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.

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.
