Know Your Analyte...
Ask yourself a simple question. Do you know the structure or any of the physical properties of the analyte(s) from your most recent analysis? If the answer is yes, award yourself a self-congratulatory point. If no, why on earth not?
Automated Pressurized Liquid Extraction and Concentration
Do You Want To Increase Your Throughput, Reduce Errors And Get The Best Recoveries Possible For Your Extractions?
The FMS PLE is an automated Pressurized Liquid Extraction system for the rapid extraction of a variety of compounds in environmental, biological, food samples and packaging materials. With the PLE, just load solid, semi-solid, or liquid samples into the PLE cells, and press the start key. The entire extraction and concentration process is performed automatically and unattended producing excellent precision and high recoveries in minutes. View the product video
