Application Note: Extraction of a Full Suite of Semivolatile Compounds from Drinking Water using Automated Solid Phase Extraction
22 June 2017

Countries around the world have put regulations in place to monitor drinking water quality for a wide range of hazardous compounds, for example EPA Method 525.2. This application note details a study in which the SPE-DEX® 5000 was used to extract the EPA Method 525.2 analytes from six prepared water samples. It was found that the SPE-DEX® 5000 system provided uniform performance and a hands-off approach to the extraction step and gave high reproducibility and precision, demonstrating the utility of solid phase extraction.
