Pittcon at Orlando, FL
February 27 - March 1, 2018
We would like to thank all the organizers and participants for a successful tradeshow this year. PromoChrom is now partnered with distributors from many new regions of the world, allowing us to reach even more end users. The new SPE-01 and SPE-04+ attracted a lot of interest with their improved ergonomics, aesthetics and functionality. Several end users who have reached out to us before also had the opportunity to witness our automated SPE systems in person, and became more confident in the process.
The poster on Two-tier Online SPE helped promote awareness of our online SPE-04. The term "Two-tier online SPE" coined by PromoChrom Technologies involves using a 2nd SPE column for sample injection into LC/LC-MS, instead of a conventional sample loop. This retains all the benefits of direct sample loading such as high sensitivity and efficiency while overcoming its challenges such as clogging from dirty samples and SPE to LC column incompatibility. The 2nd SPE column's longevity is also significantly improved with our online SPE-04's back wash feature.
54th Annual NACRW at Naples, FL
July 23-26, 2017
PromoChrom was proud to showcase the new and improved SPE-01 at the annual North American Chemical Residue Workshop which drew the attention of many industry professionals. Its compact design with minimal moving parts was immediately noticed. Thanks to the organizers and sponsors of NACRW, we had this opportunity to meet some potential collaborators and stay in touch with the latest trends in chemical analysis.
Our poster titled "Integration of Sample Preparation with Chromatographic Analysis" was also featured at the gallery. It outlines the advantages and challenges of direct vs indirect integration of solid phase extraction with LC/LC-MS. Depending on your application, one approach may be more suitable than the other. Our discontinued product LC-03 was designed to perform direct sample loading and the SPE-04 can do both.
Refer to our application note that demonstrates how SPE-04 can combine the advantages and eliminate the challenges of both approaches through a two-tier online SPE approach.
