Results and Learnings from Automating the SPE of draft EPA Method 1633

Results and learns from automating solid phase extraction of EPA Method 1633

💡Key Learnings of Automating EPA Method 1633💡

Given the labor-intensive nature of EPA Method 1633’s manual extraction procedure and its intricate demands, the adoption of automated solutions has intensified to bolster accuracy and efficiency. Collaborating with Claros Technologies Inc., this poster navigates the complexities of PFAS extraction and analysis, dissecting factors influencing performance and sharing insights on different matrices and the need for anti-clogging solutions.

Moreover, observations at Claros reveal surprising and practical learnings: impact of water rinse on the recovery of shorter-chain PFAS, lab temperature's influence on neutral compounds, and the detrimental effects of extract evaporation. The research also explores the effectiveness of carbon clean-up, comparing the results between lab and field sample evaluations.

In addressing challenges linked to matrices with solids and suspensions, the poster introduces forward-thinking anti-clogging technologies. Inline filters and anti-clogging frits emerge as tangible solutions, effectively countering clogging concerns and ensuring the longevity of system components.
