Automated SPME fibre exchange

Solid Phase Micro Extraction (SPME) is a widely used technique for extraction and concentration of VOCs and SVOCs combined with GC/MS. SPME is especially useful in the food, flavor and beverage industries and for environmental monitoring.
Until now, a limitation has been the lack of automation of the fiber exchange.

The GERSTEL Multi Fibre Exchanger MFX is a unique automated fibre exchange option for the GERSTEL MultiPurpose Sampler (MPS). MFX enables automated SPME analysis of samples using different fibres in one automated sequence, covering a wide range of fibre and analyte polarities. MFX is an excellent tool to speed up method development, or for example a series of air-monitoring fibres using passive sampling. SPME Multi-Fibre stations are available for three fibres or for 25 fibres.

Ready-to-use SPME Fast Fit Fiber Assemblies (FFA) for the GERSTEL MFX system may be purchased directly from Gerstel.

GERSTEL Multi Fibre EXchange offers:

  • SPME fibre exchange in regular intervals for automated SPME analysis over-night and during the weekend
  • Fast and flexible SPME method development
  • Automated processing of SPME fibres used for passive sampling
  • Automated extraction of samples using different SPME fibres
  • Mechanical stress during fibre exchange is minimized for extended fibre life
  • With accessories from Supelco®, the automated fibre exchange needles are easily used for passive sampling(SPME FFA Field Sampler), and may later be transported in a fully protected mode.
