SPME Arrow Size = Sensitivity

By now you should know what a SPME Arrow is and that you should be using a SPME Arrow instead of a traditional SPME fiber, because the Arrow is more durable. The same physical dimensions, which make an Arrow more mechanically robust, also afford an increase in sensitivity. Last time, you saw that the phase […]

SPME Arrow Robustness = Confidence

When you see an analytical chemist confidently swagger through the laboratory, you cannot help but ask yourself “is he/she using SPME Arrows?” You say this now, because you know that the SPME Arrow bolsters copious amounts of confidence, which all stems from the increased mechanical robustness and phase volumes, over traditional SPME fibers that is. […]

Does that SPME Arrow come with a free lunch?

Here at Restek our company has a core value referred to as “In the Light.” For me, I like to think of it as no skeletons in the closet. So, time for me to shine a little light. I already introduced you to the SPME Arrow. I also addressed the SPME Arrow’s larger diameter and […]

Excellent SPME question Hailey!!!

Last time, I told you I hunt for organic compounds with SPME Arrows, as opposed to the traditional SPME fibers, because I greatly appreciate the mechanical robustness and increased phase volumes afforded by the SPME Arrow. That blog has since received the following excellent comment/question from Hailey: The “sheath” part of the Arrow looks to […]

I hunt with arrows… SPME that is!

When you say “I hunt with arrows” in central PA, you better be prepared for a long conversation about whitetail deer. So, I better clarify that I am talking about hunting for organic compounds with a SPME Arrow. What is all this I am talking about? Time for a brief history lesson: Janusz Pawliszyn (University […]
