One aliquot will serve as the method blank. Apply 2 mL of hexane to complete the transfer. The practices in References 2 and 14 are highly recommended.

Table 10 lists the phases and suggested quantities for extraction of various sample matrices. R,nse the sample container twice with 1-mL portions of hexane and apply separately to the column. Ongoing precision and recovery. Therefore, the laboratory should homogenize at least 20 g of tissue to allow for re-extraction of mdthod second aliquot of the same homogenized sample, if re-analysis is required.

In this event, correct the problem, re-prepare, extract, and clean up the sample batch and repeat the ongoing precision and recovery test Section Weigh the metod, record the weight, and return the receiver to the blowdown apparatus, concentrating the residue until a constant weight is obtained.

Remove the Snyder column methdo rinse the glass joint into the receiver with small portions of solvent. Add 10 uL of nonane to the vial, and evaporate the solvent to the level of the nonane.

Extract for 18 to 24 hours. After the TCDD is completely dissolved, transfer the solution to a clean mL vial with fluoropolymer- lined cap.


One liter of aqueous samples i containing one percent solids will contain 10 grams of solids. Stir for 2 to 3 hours. If using basic alumina, substitute 6 g basic alumina Section 7. Place the round-bottom flask in a heating mantle, and apply heat as required to complete the concentration in 15 to 20 minutes. The clothing may be put into a washer without contact if the launderer knows of the potential problem. For aqueous samples containing greater than one percent!

Allow the sample to equilibrate for 1 metho 2 hours, with occasional shaking. If solvent 113b has occurred, the solution should be replaced.

Complete the quantitative transfer with several hexane rinses. Because the instrument is operated in the high-resolution mode, mass drifts of a few ppm e.

Grind the blank and reference matrix aliquots using a clean grinder. May be prepared by extraction with methylene chloride. The method blank is used to determine if analytes or interferences are present in the laboratory environment, the reagents, or the apparatus. Use within five days of baking. PAR standard Section 7.

If the sampler uses a peristaltic pump, a minimum length of compressible silicone rubber tubing may be used in the pump only. Latex gloves are commonly used to reduce exposure of the hands. Adjust the flow of nitrogen so metthod the surface of the solvent is just visibly disturbed.

Compute the relative response RR at each concentration. Rinse the bottle and sodium sulfate with hexane to complete the transfer. Place a glass-wool plug in a mm ID chromatography column Section 6. Collect the fraction s in a clean mL concentrator tube containing 5 mL of hexane: Frequently check the apparatus for foaming during the first 2 hours of extraction.


A mark is placed on the vial at the level of the solution so that solvent loss by evaporation can be detected. All portions of the column that connect the GC to the ion source shall remain at or above the interface temperature specified above during analysis to preclude condensation mfthod less volatile compounds.

Corrective actions must be implemented whenever the resolving power does not meet the requirement. Proceed with micro-concentration and solvent exchange Section Dilute 10 uL of the precision and recovery I standard Section 7. Aqueous samples are filtered after spiking with the labeled compounds. The analyst is permitted to modify the method to overcome interferences or lower the cost of measurements, provided that all performance criteria in this method are met.

Specification given as concentration in the final extract, assuming a ML volume.

EPA Method 1613B

Fire-polish both ends and flare both’ ends if desired. This will assist the laboratory in tracking possible sources of contamination for individual samples, identifying glassware associated with highly contaminated samples that may require extra cleaning, and determining when glassware should be discarded.

Cover the beakers with aluminum foil and allow to equilibrate for hours. Any alternative technique acceptable so long as the requirements mehhod Section 9 are met. Before using a cleanup metohd, the analyst must demonstrate that the requirements of Section 9.
