This webinar will discuss the development of offline solid phase extraction and novel analytical methods for trace analysis of organic microcontaminants in wastewaters. The laboratory uses the Autotrace 280 offline SPE to eliminate matrix interferences and concentrate a wide variety of contaminants. After sample preparation, high performance mass spectrometry techniques (e.g. UHPLC-Orbitrap MS/MS) are used to detect, identify, and quantify emerging contaminants (including endocrine disruptors, pharmaceuticals, and surfactants) in wastewater and drinking water. We will discuss how optimized sample preparation coupled to high-resolution accurate mass MS/MS facilitates detailed investigations of targeted and non-targeted contaminants at trace levels and will illustrate the application of this approach to gain an increased understanding of how emerging contaminants are transported and transformed within aquatic ecosystems.
- Learn the latest techniques for automated, offline SPE.
- How to remove matrix prior to high resolution MS
- How these techniques are applied to complex waste water matrices
