TF-SPME starter kit
This brochure describes the thin-film solid-phase microextraction (TF-SPME) starter kit. TF-SPME is a sampling approach for sorptive extraction of VOCs and SVOCs at ultra-trace levels.
Developed by the inventor of SPME, Professor Janusz Pawliszyn, TF-SPME uses a strip of carbon mesh impregnated with a SPME sorptive phase.
As with traditional SPME, TF-SPME membranes can be used to extract VOCs and SVOCs from solids and liquids, using immersive or headspace techniques.
However, the large surface area and 100× greater volume of sorptive phase offer more rapid extraction and greater sensitivity, making TF-SPME an ideal sampling tool for ultra-trace level analysis.
