This application note outlines the extraction of semivolatile organic compounds from drinking water according to EPA Method 525.3. The data illustrate that Horizon Technology’s SmartPrep Automated Extractor, DryVap Concentrator, and DryDisk Separation Membranes represent a complete solution for the extraction of semi-volatile organics. An automated procedure such as the one outlined here, a laboratory can save much in the way of time and money by freeing up an analyst to perform other, more complicated tasks.
