Microextraction by packed sorbent (MEPS) is a new format for solid-phase extraction (SPE) that has been miniaturized to work with sample volumes as small as 10muL. The commercially available presentation of MEPS uses the same sorbents as conventional SPE columns and so is suitable for use with most existing methods by scaling the reagent and sample volumes. Unlike conventional SPE columns, the MEPS sorbent bed is integrated into a liquid handling syringe that allows for low void volume sample… CONTINUE READING
