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 and Concentration system designed for the rapid extraction and concentration 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 and get the extract concentrated to final volume in a vial ready for analysis. The entire extraction and concentration process is performed automatically and unattended eliminates errors, reduces solvent consumption while producing excellent precision and high recoveries in minutes.

The LCGC Blog: Retention Shifts in HPLC
The nature of retention time changes in HPLC tends to fall into categories. First, the retention time may “drift” over several injections or several analytical campaigns and secondly, the retention time may suddenly “jump” to a different value between injections or between analytical campaigns (i.e. analyte retention times are very different to when that method was run last). More...

Solving One of Chromatography’s Biggest Dilemma — Proper Sealing of Chromatography Autosamper Vials — Using the Advanced Vial Closure System (AVCS)
Thursday, June 6, 2013
8:00 am PDT/ 11:00 am EDT/ 16:00 BST/ 17:00 CEDT.
This web seminar will review the impact an innovative vial & closure design, like AVCS, can have on improving data quality by providing data that supports how an AVCS-designed vial & closure eliminates under and over compression of vial seals while improving robotic autosampler pick-up of vials, ensuring more centered vial closure positioning and greater optical recognition of vials placed in autosamplers.

Multi-Residue Pesticide Analysis in Herbal Products Using Accelerated Solvent Extraction with Triple Quadrupole
Wednesday, June 25, 2013
8:00 am PDT/ 11:00 am EDT/ 16:00 BST/ 17:00 CEDT.
As the human population grows and farm acreage shrinks, the use of pesticides has increased, in order to produce food efficiently. Regulatory organizations are therefore requiring manufacturers to present test data on pesticide levels in food to address public safety concerns. Sensitive and robust routine screening methods to analyze hundreds of potential contaminants are therefore necessary.
