The new EDGE™ technology is based on energized, dispersive, guided, extraction and combines traditional pressurized fluid extraction with dSPE. This new automated process provides flexibility and speed never before achieved. The EDGE™ is a complete solution to sample preparation providing fluid addition, rapid extraction, sample filtration, and fluid dispensing all in less than 5 minutes. Also, with the addition of appropriate Q-sorbents™ it can combine analyte extraction and sample cleanup in a rapid single step process.
The EDGE™ is compact (about the size of an analytical balance) and can process 12 samples per hour. This allows high throughput labs to use multiple units to process 50 - 100 samples per hour. Key markets are environmental, food, plastics, consumer products, pharmaceuticals, forensics and clinical.
