TurboTrace PFC

The TurboTrace PFC SPE system is a fully automated sample preparation system that will run up to  6 samples simultaneously for analyzing perfluorinated compounds in waste water.  The system is a green technique that provides consistent, reproducible results and eliminates sample reruns. It incorporates vacuum or positive pressure pump to load samples for compliance with all SPE methods.  It uses positive pressure pumping for precise and accurate delivery of conditioning, washing and elution solvents. The TurboTrace PFC SPE system is specifically designed to isolate analytes of interest from a wide variety of liquid matrices such as urine, blood, water, milk, beverages. Sample sizes range from 2 mL to 8 L and use the same bottle the sample was collected in. Sample loading rates are programmable. A vacuum or positive pressure pump is used to load samples onto the SPE cartridges and columns at unprecedented speeds and it easily handles both clean and tough sample matrices. An liquid sensor detects when the sample has been loaded, triggering the system to initate next steps. The Sample Processing Module is designed to use all standard formats of SPE cartridges and columns on the market today. For guaranteed results, especially when dealing with low limits of detection, we recommend FMS prepacked  cartridges.

The TurboTrace PFC (Perfluoralkylated substances) SPE system is designed to streamline your laboratory’s workflow and increase productivity by automating the manual steps in your sample preparation process. It is designed for high throughput and tough sample matrices. The TurboTrace PFC SPE system automates existing manual SPE techniques and replaces older manual Liquid-Liquid Extraction techniques and outdated semi-automated instruments. Perfluoralkylated substances is a general term used to describe substances which are largely comprised of or contain a perfluorinated or polyfluorinated carbon chain moiety such as F(CF2)n- or F(CF2)n-(C2H4)n. In recent years, there has been increasing concern over the levels of perfluorinated and polyfluorinated chemicals, such as PFOS (perfluorosulfonate) and PFOA (perfluorooctanoicacid), in the global environment and their fate and possible adverse effects in the environment. PFOS is now subject to varying but increasing levels of control in a number of countries. The TurboTrace PFC SPE system, the first automated solid phase extraction system made specifically for PFC extraction and concentration. Primarily effective at reducing background contamination, extraction and concentration of aqueous samples takes less than two hours
