AN359: Extraction of Contaminants, Pollutants, and Poisons from Animal Tissue Using Accelerated Solvent Extraction (ASE)Instrument Type: Automated Sample Prep
Accelerated Solvent Extraction (ASE) uses solvents at elevated temperatures and pressures to extract organic materials from solid and semisolid samples in a fraction of the time required by traditional extraction procedures. This Application Note details procedures for extracting the following contaminants from animal tissues: Dioxins/Furans, Polybrominated Flame Retardants (PBDE), PCBs, pesticides, PAHs, and organo-tin.
AN316: Extraction of PCBs from Environmental Samples Using Accelerated Solvent ExtractionInstrument Type: Automated Sample Prep
Accelerated solvent extraction is an extraction method that significantly streamlines sample preparation. PCBs are found in many solid waste materials. This AN describes the application of accelerated solvent extraction to the extraction of PCBs from sewage sludge, river sediments, marine sediments, and oyster tissue. The procedures described in this AN meet the requirements for sample extraction of solid samples as determined by U.S. EPA Method 3545.
