1-day Hands-on Solid-Phase Micro-Extraction (SPME)

Anthias Consultancy Ltd

Course accreditation

This course has been approved by the Royal Society of Chemistry for purposes of Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

What will you learn on this course?

This one day course is spent learning the theory behind Solid-Phase Micro-Extraction and how to modify samples to improve results, then using this knowledge to create SPME methods, analyse samples and experiment with parameters to see the effects.

This course will cover Headspace-SPME and Immersion-SPME, SPME phases, SPME instrumentation & set up and troubleshooting. It will introduce related techniques like SBSE, SPE-TD and SPDE.

Learning Outcomes

  • You will learn about and gain practical experience on how to use SPME as an automated sample preparation technique for GC-MS in great detail
  • You will learn the fundamental theory of SPME
  • You will learn about the types of samples that can be analysed using SPME
  • You will learn about and gain practical experience in the various parameters that can be optimised for the technique to improve sensitivity
  • You will set up and maintain the technique on an instrument
  • You will learn about the individual steps of SPME
  • You will learn the common troubleshooting problems in SPME
  • You will learn the SPME tips and tricks
  • You will learn about the benefits using SPME in the analysis of your samples
