Application Note: Introducing the Micro-Chamber/Thermal Extractor for Rapid Emissions Screening of Products and Materials
8 Aug 2014


Markes’ Micro-Chamber/Thermal Extractor™ (µ-CTE™) is a compact unit for the rapid sampling of volatile and semi volatile organic compounds (VOCs and SVOCs) emitted from materials, for subsequent analysis by thermal desorption–gas chromatography (TD–GC). This Application Note describes the underlying principles of the µ-CTE, provides evidence for its performance, and illustrates its applicability with three real-life examples.
