Two different analytical strategies were tested: (i) direct analysis of microdroplets (i.e., analysis of analytes in microdroplets suspended from the tip of a microsyringe) and (ii) analysis of dry microdroplets on metallic substrates (i.e., analysis of microdroplets using a surface-enhanced LIBS technique — SENLIBS).
