Sample preparation introduction

Sample preparation

Sample preparation

In sample preparation, there are many techniques used for sample handling, preparation and storage prior the analysis. Main techniques used in this area are:

  • Drying
  • Evaporation
  • Filtration
  • Flash chromatography
  • Homogenization
  • Humidification
  • Immunoaffinity chromatography (IAC for mycotoxines)
  • Preparative chromatography
  • SPE
  • Thermal desorption
  • Ultrassonic extraction

Many samples or laboratory techniques require cooling or heating. That is why folowing instruments are used:

  • Drying ovens
  • Freezers
  • Heating blocks
  • Incubators
  • Refrigerators
  • Sterilizers
  • Thermostatic cabinets
  • Water baths

Sample bags

SKC produced its first sample bag in the late 1970s. The bag was made of Tedlar® film and soon became the classic sample bag for VOCs. Over the last 30 years, SKC Tedlar bags have been the number one choice of professionals for grab air sampling. However, SKC has also introduced newer high-performance materials, which provide new standards of performance for storage stability and background in bag sampling applications.

SKC manufactures its sample bags out of clean top-grade films including SamplePro FlexFilm, (SKC proprietary film), FlexFoil, and FlexFoil PLUS. Seams are strong, evenly sealed, and leak tested.
