These records include the following, at a minimum: Well- ventilated, controlled access laboratories are required. Update QC charts to form a graphic representation of continued laboratory performance. Set aside the concentration apparatus for re-use. For aqueous samples containing greater than one percent! The column specified m this method is designed to handle a maximum of 0.
The Dean-Stark moisture trap may also be omitted, if desired.
Repeat this eps at least twice. Sonication of glassware containing a detergent solution for approximately 30 seconds may aid in cleaning. The column specified in this method is designed to handle a maximum of 30 uL of extract If the extract cannot be concentrated to less than 30 ui, it is split into fractions and the fractions are combined after elution from the column.
Place a glass-wool plug in a mm ID chromatography column Section 6. Additional cleanup of the extract may be required to remove the interferences. The practices in References 2 and eppa are highly recommended.
The extract is evaporated to dryness, and the lipid content is determined. Also termed liquid-solid extraction. Remove mtehod non-aqueous liquid present and reserve the maximum amount filtered from the sample Section A secondary containment system around the shaker is suggested to prevent the spread of acid and solvents in the event of such a breakage.
For an alternative sample matrix, four aliquots of the alternative reference matrix Section 7. Apply vacuum to the flask, and pour the entire contents mfthod the sample bottle through a glass-fiber filter Section 6.
If the sampler uses a peristaltic pump, a minimum length of compressible silicone rubber tubing may be used in the pump only. Stir for 2 to 3 hours.
Extraction and analysis by GC with an electron capture detector BCD can achieve a limit of detection of 0. Place 30 to 40 mL of toluene in the receiver and to mL of toluene in the flask.
Latex gloves are commonly used to reduce exposure of the hands. Because the instrument is operated in the high-resolution mode, mass drifts of a few ppm e. In this event, correct the problem, re-prepare, extract, and clean up the sample batch and repeat the ongoing precision and recovery test Section Repeat the addition of solvent and concentrate once more.
All portions of the metthod that connect the GC to the ion source shall remain at or above the interface temperature specified above during analysis to preclude condensation of less volatile compounds.
Under those conditions, sensitivity changes that might occur during eepa analysis can be more effectively monitored. Glassware with removable parts, particularly separatory funnels with fluoropolymer stopcocks, must be disassembled prior to detergent washing. Paper industry methods suggest that the addition of up to mL of ethanol to a 1-L effluent sample may also reduce emulsion formation. Check the column for channeling. Proceed with column cleanups Sections The K-D technique is used for solvents such mehhod methylene chloride and hexane.
Va – The extract volume in mL. A large vortex in the solvent may cause analyte loss. If SPE is not to be used and the sample contains visible particles, proceed to the following section for filtration of particles. The analytes are listed in Table 1.
Rushneck, April 8, The elution order will be the tetra- through octa- isomers. Meeting the performance requirements of this method is the responsibility of the laboratory.
Weigh the receiver and boiling chips. Soe 10 3. If the flow rate of eluate exceeds 0. The method of reducing particle size to less than 1 mm is matrix-dependent.
Any non-aqueous liquid from multi-phase samples is combined with the solids methkd extracted in an SDS extractor. Where possible, reagents are cleaned by extraction or solvent rinse.
Dilute 10 uL of the precision and recovery I standard Section 7. When not being used, standards are stored in the dark at room temperature in screw-capped vials with fluoropolymer-lined caps. Observe the safety precautions in Section 5, and the recommendation in Section 5.
