Mini-disks

Venn Diagram-web2.png

To capture the advantages of SPE disk in extraction speed and overcome its disadvantages in solvent consumption and automation, PromoChrom developed a suite of Mini-disks. The Mini-disks come in a format size similar to a 30-mm syringe filter and a cross section area 5 times of a 6-mL SPE cartridge. The increased cross section area and optimized sorbent properties enables the Mini-disks to work with much higher flow rates than SPE cartridges, whereas a smaller size than conventional disks makes the Mini-disks easily adaptable to cartridge type SPE instruments and consume less solvents.

Special Features

back-in-time.png

By allowing much higher flow rates than SPE cartridges, extraction time can be significantly reduced.

Time Saving

The sorbent material for the Mini-disks are made up of 25-um spherical beads with very narrow size distribution. This smaller bead size increases sample capacity while the uniform distribution offers lower resistance to liquid passing through the disk.

Narrow Particle-size Distribution

The diameter of the Mini-disk measures only 30mm and is packaged to fit standard luer slip connections, making it suitable for cartridge-based automated SPE systems and vacuum manifolds.

System Compatibility

Our Anti-clogging frit technology is also applied to the Mini-disk for further tolerance to particulates from sample matrices.

50-mm SPE Disks

PromoChrom’s 50-mm disks can be used for extraction of large volume water samples with high amounts of particles. They use the same design and sorbents as the mini disks. Both vacuum manifold and SPE-03 system can be used.  A very efficient approach is to use the SPE-03 for conditioning and fraction collection and a vacuum manifold for fast sample loading.  A 1-liter sample can pass through the disk within 5 minutes under strong vacuum.
