HiSorb™ is an innovative, labour-saving sampling system for the analysis of volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds (VOCs and SVOCs) in liquids and solids by TD–GC–MS.
Extending the capability of thermal desorption (TD), HiSorb probes and accessories are ideal for trace-level component characterisation, aroma profiling, quality control and advanced research across a wide range of applications.
Who uses HiSorb?
Existing thermal desorption users wishing to extend their capabilities to extraction from liquids.
Users of headspace, solid-phase micro-extraction (SPME) or liquid extraction wanting to enhance the characterisation of their samples or obtain complementary information.
Why use HiSorb?
Time and cost savings
Robust, easy-to-use probes allow unattended sample preparation and maximum productivity.
HiSorb is easier and quicker to use than solvent extraction.
Re-usable probes and tubes minimise the cost per sample.
The cost of solvent consumption and disposal is eliminated.
Detection limits are lower than for SPME because of the larger capacity of the PDMS sorbent.
Cryogen-free pre-concentration by TD prior to automated GC–MS analysis improves sensitivity.

HiSorb can be used for immersive or headspace sampling of liquids and solid samples.
HiSorb is compatible with TD–GC–MS analysis using industry-standard tubes on all leading commercial systems.
