The Stratum Purge and Trap Concentrator (PTC) is a sample preparation instrument used to remove Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) out of aqueous and solid sample types using Helium or Nitrogen. The VOCs are deposited onto a sorbent trap which is then heated thus releasing the VOCs into a Gas Chromatograph (GC) system. This technique is standard for many EPA Methodologies as well as analytical options where concentration of VOCs is required. Teledyne Tekmar has been the leader in this technology since its first PTC was released in the 1980s. Tekmar has continued to improve on this technique through eight generations of systems including the Stratum PTC to meet the ever increasing analytical challenges faced by laboratories.
