With SPME analytes are absorbed onto the stationary phases coated or either fused silica or metal fibers. Then the analytes are thermally desorbed from the fiber to a GC inlet onto a capillary column. SPME techniques could require headspace or liquid extraction: HT2800T performs both by setting vial penetration depth.
SPME is useful in many different analyses, including: environmental, forensic, food/flavor and pharma. To know more about SPME visit:
