Abstract

The EDGE® automated solvent extraction system is the most advanced system available for extraction of lipids from food samples. It is based on the combination of dispersive solid phase extraction and pressurized fluid extraction, which drastically reduces the amount of time and solvent consumption. The system provides a complete fat extraction in less than 10 minutes, including extraction, filtration, cooling, and system cleaning, much faster than other extraction techniques. The EDGE is an ideal system for high-throughput extraction of all food samples, including high-fat meats. In this application note, the EDGE will be shown as a good alternative for the extraction of fat from high-fat meats.
