Sampling and Sample Preparation

This lesson points out important things to consider when taking samples. It also conveys a basic understanding of the sample preparation processes (e.g. lyophilization (G), homogenisation (G), solid phase extraction (G), liquid-liquid extraction (G) etc.) and the downstream analytical methods and modes of sample detection (e.g. gas chromatography (G), mass spectrometry (G), liquid chromatography (G), etc.). Analytical errors are discussed related to sampling and the overall analytical process. Click on the “G” to view the glossary entry.
