Thermo Scientific Dionex ASE Application Summary Notebook

Friday, 13 July, 2012 | Supplied by: Thermo Fisher Scientific

Thermo Fisher Scientific has released a collection of Application Notes on accelerated solvent extraction (ASE) of foods and foodstuffs.

The Thermo Scientific Dionex ASE Application Summary Notebook provides 19 methods that focus on ASE methods for extraction of fats and environmental contaminants from a variety of prepared foods and raw materials.

Accelerated solvent extraction is a sample preparation method for extracting organic compounds from solid or semisolid samples. The Dionex ASE system, which uses organic solvents at elevated temperature and pressure to perform extractions, is claimed to require less time and solvent than traditional extraction methods.

Thermo Fisher claims that, using the automated extraction technique, a 10 g sample can be extracted in less than 15 minutes using less than 15 mL of solvent.

The ASE removes some manual steps involved in preparing food samples for analysis, which the company claims will help ensure reproducibility and accelerate the testing process.
