Application Note: Analysis of Hormones in Water by Automated Solid Phase Extraction
31 May 2013

Hormones are a group of biologically active compounds that are of concern because of their negative effects in living organisms, such as fish and aquatic species. These biologically-active compounds can enter surface waters from point and non-point sources such as municipal wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) discharges, industrial discharges, urban runoff and animal feeding operations. Read this application note to learn how the SPE-DEX 4790 from Horizon Technology can effectively extract hormones from 1-L water samples in approximately 40 minutes.
