About this talk
The complexity and diversity of food matrices, and the need for clean extracts to be injected into analytical instrumentation may imply the use of tedious and time-consuming sample preparation strategies that often produce significant laboratory waste. The development of a new matrix-compatible solid phase microextraction (SPME) coating, namely PDMS/DVB/PDMS, bearing enhanced antifouling properties, enables the analysis of complex food matrices by direct immersion SPME, and helps to overcome issues related to extensive sample pre-treatment and instrumental contamination. This webinar will focus on recent advances made toward the analysis of contaminants in complex food samples by using the new matrix-compatible SPME coating, and will describe the optimization of important parameters to be considered when performing Direct Immersion SPME (DI-SPME).
