The sorbent is a polar functionalised styrene-divinylbenzene polymer that is capable of exhibiting hydrophobic, p-p, dipolar and hydrogen bonding retention mechanisms. The 25 µm particle has a surface area of >800 m2/g, resulting in an analyte capacity that is claimed to be higher than that of saliva-based sorbents. The strata-X sorbent is available in a 20 x 2 mm cartridge for convenient online processing.
