♥ Pressurized Fluid Extraction (PFE) or Pressurized Liquid Extraction (PLE) is a new sample extraction method that employs liquid solvents at elevated temperatures and pressures to prepare samples for analysis by either gas chromatography or liquid chromatography. Pressurized liquid extraction is similar to Soxhlet extraction, except that during the extraction process the solvent condition inside the PLE cell approaches the supercritical region which results in more efficient extractions. The elevated temperature allows the sample to become more soluble and achieve a higher diffusion rate while the elevated pressure keeps the solvent below its boiling point. At elevated pressures and temperatures solvents can penetrate solid samples more efficiently which reduces solvent usage.

Automatic Documentation The DMS-6000 software allows multiple methods to be stored. Each parameter such as time, solvent volume, and final temperature can be set for each step. Pressure, temperature and dispensed volumes are displayed real time. All parameters for each run are documented and stored for future reference.
DMS 6000 Software The PLE™ system uses a PC to control the entire extraction, sample cleanup and concentration process. The DMS-6000 real time software allows multiple samples to be processed simultaneously.
Recoveries and Reproducibility Method compliance or better
Real Time Monitoring, Plotting of Pressure and Temperature    The DMS-6000 real time software allows six channels of pressure and six channels of temperature to be plotted in real time. This powerful feature allows automatic documentation of the entire extraction data. The temperature and pressure can be superimposed and printed in graphic or tabular format.
One Step Automated Extraction, Sample Clean up and Concentration Control Software Used to write, and edit extraction protocols, monitor, and store the extraction, ample cleanup and concentration data. It also controls the entire sample prep process.
Automatic Extraction Data Report  The DMS-6000 real time software allows the creation of an automatic data report based on the sample sequence set up. Printed data contains the graph and parameters of the sample extraction.
