UCT’s CUNAX Solid Phase Sorbent Cited in Surfactant Article
Many contaminants are now entering the composition of industrial and domestic products (personal care products, cosmetics, detergents, etc.). Following a massive and varied use of these products, significant amounts of pollutants can be found at different levels of the water cycle, particularly in urban areas. Healthcare facility discharges, by their nature, are often considered as non-domestic effluent, which can provide significant pollution comparatively to other domestic sources. In a recent paper authored by Alexandre Bergé et al., published in Environmental Science and Pollution Research (doi.org/10.1007/s11356-017-0470-8), UCT’s anion exchange solid phase extraction (SPE) cartridges CUNAX (200 mg/ 3 mL) was employed for the extraction/preconcentration of surfactants in waste water samples.
