Isolate trace organics from large-volume organic matrices

Automatically isolate trace organics from large-volume aqueous matrices

Isolate trace organics from large-volume aqueous matrices using the Thermo Scientific Dionex AutoTrace 280 SPE system. This automated system traps and concentrates analytes of interest, enabling accommodation of 6 samples in 2-3 hours using only 15 minutes of operator time. Typical applications include PAH, PCB, PCDD, PCDF, PFAs, pesticides, herbicides, flame retardants, semivolatiles, nitrosamines, and steroids.
