Fabric Phase Sorptive Extraction (FPSE) Media – IP 1303

FIU inventors created a media for sampling and sample preparation for the analysis of trace and ultra-trace level of organic analytes that can be applied to different sample matrices of interest. The media utilizes a sol-gel process to create a hybrid organic-inorganic polymeric network and to anchor the polymeric network onto the surface of flexible substrate materials. The chemically bonded sorbent system offers very high specific surface area, and excellent chemical and high thermal stability. The media has been successfully tested in solvent minimized or solvent-less microextraction conditions for the extraction of trace and ultra-trace levels of organic analytes including highly polar analytes from different sample matrices. Sample preparation with this media is equally compatible with gas chromatography, liquid chromatography, capillary electrophoresis and other analytical instruments. Hence, the FPSE provides an improved new generation technique for trace and ultra-trace sample preparation for instrumental analysis. We are looking for a business partner to further develop and commercialize the Novel FPSE as a viable alternative to commercially available techniques and to exploit its scientific and business potential as a highly sensitive sampling and sample preparation media for trace and ultra-trace analytes from different matrices including biological, environmental, chemical, forensic, toxicological, and pharmaceutical importance.
