UCT: A 30 Year Tradition of Excellence in Sample Preparation

Since their beginnings in 1986, UCT has evolved into a major competitor in the field of silica based solid phase extraction technology. The first to pioneer commercially available ‘mixed-mode’ SPE products, 30 years later UCT is still optimizing sample analysis for forensic, pharmaceutical, clinical, environmental and agricultural laboratories. Michael J. Telepchak, founder and CEO UCT, Inc., has laid the foundation for this powerful technology and has truly served as a catalyst for its transformation from a novel technique to an industry gold standard. From fundamental chemistry to manufacturing and business development, he has bared witness to all facets of the evolution of solid phase extraction and will speak on the monumental impact it has made on the scientific community.

Ion Exchange Sorbents for Metals Extraction- Analysis & Sorbent Use Selection Guide

The use of ion-exchange sorbents for the preconcentration, separation and determination of metal ions is well established in the literature. Selection of an appropriate sorbent ensures both high efficiency in metal chelating while minimizing the mass of sorbent required for a particular analytical task. A high efficiency sorbent means that a smaller bed mass may be used thereby reducing the quantity of solvent required for elution yielding greater analytical sensitivity.
