ELUVAC – Automated Solid Phase Extraction
Vacuum Manifold for Solid Phase Extraction
The EluVac vacuum manifold allows simultaneous processing up to 20 samples under vacuum. It is the ideal solution for enriching, concentrating and isolating analytes using solid phase extraction.
It is mechanically and chemically robust, fl exible and can optimally be used for a wide range of matrices in environmental, food and feed, pharmaceutical and clinical applications.
A special highlight: By simply turning the head, you can switch from the “waste” to the “collect” position without disassembling the device.
Racks for ten 60 mL and twenty 4 mL as well as for six 100 mL round bottom bottles (NS 29/32) are available for the manifold.
For waste, either a 600 mL beaker glass is placed directly in the system or a central tube leads the waste into an external container. Thus the EluVac device can also be used for large volume samples e.g. water or milk.
Columns for the H53 Method and Other Florisil® Applications
The determination of the hydrocarbon oil index in surface, industrial and process water in compliance with EN ISO 9377-2 (H53) is daily routine in many laboratories. Using intelligent sample preparation can reduce time and costs for the analysis significantly.
The LCTech Elufix columns can be used for all kinds of samples. They are delivered factory sealed and can be instantly used without further pre-treatment. The single-use columns are filled with 2g, 4g or 10g of activated Florisil and 2g anhydrous sodium sulphate. The use of inert materials like glass, fiber glass and PTFE excludes interactions with the analytes as well as contaminations.
Histamine is produced by microbial decomposition of the amino acid histidine and is stored in the cells.
In perishable foodstuff like fi sh, sausages, cheese, wine or milk the concentration of histamine is an indicator for the freshness and ultimately for quality of product.
The consumption of histamine-containing food can lead to serious poisoning. This is why it is absolutely necessary to have quick and reliable controls for the histamine concentration in both food and feed.
From an in-situ quick test to a complete kit for the analysis of biogenic amines, LCTech and Pickering offer reliable and inexpensive tools for the analysis of histamine.
