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. The automated system traps and concentrates analytes of interest so that one run can accommodate 6 samples in 2 to 3 hours with only 15 minutes of operator time. Typical applications include PAH, PCB, PCDD, PCDF, pesticides, herbicides, flame retardants, semivolatiles, nitrosamines, and steroids.

Featured accelerated solvent extraction categories

This system automates SPE for up to 6 samples—from cartridge or disk conditioning, sample loading, rinsing, and eluting steps, washing, and eluting.

Offered in a variety of chemistries and sizes, Dionex SolEx SPE cartridges trap and concentrate your analytes of interest from large-volume aqueous matrices.

Accessories include bottles, tubes, racks and maintenance kits you may want to use with your Dionex AutoTrace 280 system.
