Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are ubiquitous environmental contaminants, naturally occurring in coal, crude oil, gasoline, and their byproducts (e.g. coal tar or creosote). In addition, PAHs are formed in the incomplete combustion processes of all organic materials, such as wood or fossil fuels. Consequently, the EU water framework directive (WFD) lists in its annex X the whole group of PAHs as priority hazardous substances.

Endogenous phospholipids present in biological fluids are a major problem in LCMS/ MS analysis as they are often very difficult to remove during sample preparation. When phospholipids are not removed, they retain very strongly on reversed phase analytical columns. If high organic (end of run) washes are not incorporated into the LC methods these matrix components may elute in subsequent analyses causing regions of suppression/enhancement leading to inaccurate quantitation. This poster evaluates the use of polymer-based solid phase extraction (SPE) sorbents, incorporating hydrophobic and various mixedmode retention mechanisms to address the problems associated with phospholipid removal.

Biotage® PRESSURE+ manifolds deliver positive pressure, parallel processing for 96 well plates and column formats. The systems utilize a consistent, uniform flow of positive pressure to move both low and high viscosity liquids through SPE plates and columns. ISOLUTE SLE+ Supported Liquid Extraction plates and columns offer an efficient alternative to traditional liquid-liquid extraction (LLE) for bioanalytical sample preparation, providing high analyte recoveries, no emulsion formation and greatly matrix effects associated with biofluid analysis.

Oftentimes, aqueous samples collected contain varying amounts of suspended solids or sediment strictly due to either the source of the water being sampled or improper sampling techniques. In any circumstance, samples with high amounts of particulates or sediment have proven challenging to extract using EPA Method 3535 Solid Phase Extraction (SPE).

With the promulgation of the third iteration of the Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Program, testing for the presence of 1,4-Dioxane has become a topic of concern. Primarily used as an industrial solvent or solvent stabilizer, the main hindrances to the recovery of 1,4-Dioxane are both its high water solubility and its volatility.
