Solid Phase Micro-Extraction (SPME)

Single fibre samplers are used to collect volatile and semi-volatile analyses.  Fibres are coated with a range of stationary phases similar to those used in capillary columns, in a range of thicknesses (capacities).  Samples are taken by exposing the fibre to atmosphere or immersing in a liquid. The fibre can then be thermally desorbed in a GC inlet or placed in an LC inlet. Remote sampling is possible, the fibre is then returned to the laboratory for analysis.
