Understanding and Optimizing Headspace SPME

Presented by

Robert E. Shirey, Principal R&D Scientist, Merck KGaA, Darmstadt Germany

About this talk

Solid phase microextraction (SPME) is a fast, economical, solvent-free, quantitative method for extraction of analytes out of a sample. When analysing volatile and semi-volatile analytes, extraction may be performed in the headspace, or space surrounding the sample, avoiding direct immersion of the fiber. This presentation will provide method development guidance for the extraction and quantification of analytes using headspace SPME. The mechanism of headspace SPME will be explained in detail. Methods for enhancing extraction efficiency will be described. Advantages of headspace SPME over other common extraction methods will be highlighted.
