Application Note: Determination of Microcystins in Water Using Automated Solid Phase Extraction and Concentration Techniques
28 June 2016

Microcystin-LR is a toxin produced by cyanobacteria, recognized as the most acute hazardous pollution currently known. The microcystin-LR maximum contaminant level (MCL) in drinking water recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) is 1.0 ug/L. In this application note Horizon Technology demonstrates how to extract microcystin from liquid samples using the Technology SPE-DEX® 4790 automated extractor system and the DryVap® concentrator system.
