Abstract: Combining advantages of SPE and SPME needle trap devices (NTD) represent promising new tools for a robust and reproducible sample preparation. This study was intended to investigate the effect of different packing materials on efficacy and reproducibility of VOC analysis by means of needle trap micro extraction (NTME). NTDs with a side hole design and containing different combinations of PDMS, DVB and Carbopack X and Carboxen 1000 and NTDs containing a single layer organic polymer of methacrylic acid and ethyl…
