PFAS Extraction Challenges

Dr. Beryl Xia, Lead Analytical Chemist at Claros Technologies, is familiar with the challenges of manual extraction and said that when Claros was first founded, "I was running an analytical lab alone, and doing solid phase extraction manually was not a realistic option. The solid phase extraction procedure for PFAS analysis is also extremely time-consuming". In her lab, they mainly run PFAS extraction in non-potable matrices including groundwater, surface water and industrial water, which are high in solid, organic and salt content with extensive PFAS presence. Achieving good recovery in complicated matrices is another challenging task that requires optimal extraction procedure.

Why Choose PromoChrom Initially?

While looking for an automated SPE solution two years ago to meet all their needs, Beryl came across the SPE-03 8-Channel system and said that "SPE-03 was the most attractive choice on the market and offered exactly what I was looking for." 

How has the SPE-03 helped?

Since 2020, PromoChrom has been collaborating closely with Claros to take on the most challenging PFAS samples. Beryl shared her experience of using the SPE-03 for PFAS extraction and working with PromoChrom:"SPE-03 has significantly reduced the involvement of human interaction, and reduced sample preparation time by 40-50% on average. We have been able to receive very strong technical support from PromoChrom's team as well." In addition, Beryl commented that the SPE-03 is compact, convenient to use and cost-effective.


PromoChrom is honored to have the opportunity to work with Beryl and be part of Claros' mission to create a healthier and more sustainable environment.

What’s your Feedback on the SPE-03?

"We added a PromoChrom SPE-03 to our high-tech arsenal earlier this year to support our PFAS Analytical R&D. The SPE-03 performs automatic solid-phase extraction (SPE) which allows for consistency and reliability in sample extraction from batch to batch. In addition to saving hours of time for each batch, the instrument makes our analytical procedure for PFAS analysis easier and faster. The setup of SPE-03 is simple and intuitive. PromoChrom provides a video and a thorough manual for instrument installation and operation. PromoChrom is also very responsive when we have questions and need some help."
