General description

We are committed to bringing you greener alternative products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. Thermal desorption tubes are reusable at least 50 to 100 times, and reduces the usage of accessories like transfer vials, caps, and pipette tips, thus aligns with “Waste Prevention”. Also, these tubes eliminate the usage of toxic solvents like CS2 to extract the VOCs of interest, and thus aligns with “Safer Solvents and Auxiliaries” principle. Click here for more information.


Carbopack B is a thermal sorption tube which may be used for the trapping and extraction of herbicides, simazine and atrazine in water samples followed by analysis using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC).

Features and Benefits

USP Code [S12]. Surface area approximately 100 m2/g.

Legal Information

Carbopack is a trademark of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany

Storage Class

11 - Combustible Solids
