Solid phase extraction, or SPE, is a common sample preparation technique used to separate analytes of interest from matrices that often cause ion suppression. The most common formats of SPE on the market exist as cartridges, 96-well plates, on-line, and QuEChERS. Except for the last example, SPE was traditionally made in a fixed sorbent bed. This presentation will introduce a relatively new format, in-pipet tip dispersive SPE, DPX (Dispersive Pipette eXtraction).

DPX tips containing a recently developed polymeric HLB (Hydrophilic-Lipophilic Balanced) sorbent from MilliporeSigma were used in several clinical/toxicological applications across multiple biological matrices (urine and serum). Although the workflow using the DPX HLB tips can be completed manually, this webinar will highlight the full automatability of sample preparation using robotic liquid handlers. Advantages of this novel technology, including time and cost savings, will also be discussed.

As an attendee, you will learn more about:

  • DPX tips
  • HLB material
  • Automation with Hamilton
  • Application: Opioid drugs from urine
  • Application: Steroid hormone determination in serum
