New SPME method for detection of organic trace substances
The objective was to develop a cost-effective process that is easy to install and enables the detection of organic, pharmaceutical trace substances in wastewater.
The technology chosen for the process was SPME, which can be used for a broad spectrum of stressors. In this way, it was possible to lower the detection thresholds for certain stressors significantly.
Due to the positive results, it was possible to validate the new measurement process on the basis of the ICH Guidelines.
