SymbiosisTM Pharma is Spark Holland's unique solution for integrated online SPE-LC-MS automation (XLC-MS). The system offers large flexibility in processing different types of samples selecting one of the three fully automated operational modes LC-MS; XLC-MS; AMD (Advanced Method Development). This application shows a fast method development for Chloramphenicol with the use of the AMD mode of Symbiosis Pharma together with the HySphereTM method development cartridge tray (Spark p.n.0722.650).
