At Anatune, we try to automate all aspects of sample preparation. One of the simplest of these is filtration. This may be used as part of a more complex sample preparation procedure, or just on its own prior to LC analysis for more 'dilute and shoot' approaches. It is particularly important for ultra high performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC/UPLC).
There are a number of techniques that can be employed for extraction of flavours from liquid samples, most of which can be fully automated with the GERSTEL MPS platform. Liquid-Liquid Micro Extraction (LLME) and Dispersive Liquid-Liquid Micro Extraction (DLLME) have been used for a number of targeted applications.
The toxicity, carcinogenicity and ubiquity of formaldehyde is well-known and can impact on air quality in workplaces, homes and the environment.
