Solid phase extraction (SPE) is a useful technique to enhance detection limits to analyse even very small amounts of compounds. Most often SPE is carried out manually but coupled to an HPLC system, the so called online SPE technique allows an automated sample analysis. The used system configuration makes it possible to switch between direct injection via autosampler and injection with an auxiliary pump (aux/feed pump) without changing/replumbing the system.
