Its small size is a big advantage

Energized Dispersive Extraction

With Q-Cup technology, Energized Dispersive Extraction is simple and fast for all applications. Extract semi-volatile organic compounds from soil, fat from food, phthalates from plastics, and many more applications with EDGE.

  • Fastest technique available (5 minute cycle time)
  • 12 samples in an hour (includes washing, filtering, & cooling)
  • Q-Cups (sample holders) are easily assembled and cleaned
  • Small footprint (about the size of an analytical balance)
  • One technology with unlimited applications (Q-Cup Technology)

The Q-Cup™ sample holder consists of just three easy-to-assemble pieces. The unique open cell concept creates a dispersive effect which promotes rapid extraction and filtration. No additional steps are required prior to analysis. The Q-Cup is ultra-thin aluminum for efficient heating. It’s light-weight and easy to carry.


1. Sample is Loaded
The Q-Cup is automatically loaded into the chamber by the auto sampler. The pressure cap then creates a pressurized seal on the top of the Q-Cup.

2. Solvent is Added
Solvent is first added through the bottom to fill the gap between the chamber and Q-Cup, this aids in heat transfer. Then, solvent is added through the top of the Q-Cup to wet the sample.
As the chamber walls are heated, the pressure in the gap increases. This overcomes the pressure inside the Q-Cup, forcing the solvent to disperse into the sample.

3. Extract is Collected
Once the sample reaches temperature, the solvent is dispensded through the Q-Disc, the cooling coil, and into a collection vial.

    CEM GmbH

    CEM was founded by a chemist and two engineers. The engineers have since retired, but the chemist, Michael Collins, PhD, is still the president and CEO of CEM and actively involved in the company’s R&D projects. As a result, CEM invests significantly in R&D and promotes an atmosphere conduc ... more
