Application Note: Analysis of Pharmaceuticals in Water by Automated Solid Phase Extraction
3 June 2013

Anthropogenic activities are one of the main causes for water quality damage and, consequently, social concern calls for quality control action. Pharmaceuticals and personal care products are an important group of contaminants that have been targeted. Solid phase extraction techniques are often used to isolate and pre-concentrate the organic compounds of interest. Read this application note to learn how the SPE-DEX 4790 from Horizon Technology can effectively extract pharmaceutical compounds from 1-L water samples in approximately 40 minutes.
