Automated Ultrasonic Extraction of a Plant Material Using the Gerstel MPS Dual Head WorkStation

To date, sample preparation of solid materials requiring ultrasonic extraction has mostly been performed manually. This is in part due to the fact that automation of the sonication step has not previously been available; however, another reason is that the solid particulate can create a suspension in the extraction solvent, which can easily block a syringe, making automated collection of the extract and subsequent injection to the GC or LC unreliable.
