Salt Removal from Microliter Sample Volumes by Multiple Phase Microelectromembrane Extractions Across Free Liquid Membranes.

A new concept for rapid and efficient salt removal from minute volumes of saline samples is presented by using multiple phase microelectromembrane extraction (μ-EME). A disposable μ-EME unit is filled with five consecutive plugs of immiscible aqueous and organic solutions; the aqueous sample forms the central phase and is encompassed by two free liquid… CONTINUE READING
