For automation of SPME with the PAL RTC and PAL RSI a SPME Tool is available, as well as an Agitator Module for agitation/sample enrichment at up to 200°C and a SPME Fiber Conditioning Module.
Fully automated SPME fiber selection and method development is now possible due to Robotic Tool Change.
The PAL COMBI-xt (ref. 2) is the most widely used and successful autosampler for SPME. Also for the PAL-xt a SPME Option and a Fiber Conditioning Station are available.
PAL SPME Fibers can be ordered from Kovalent.
