TEPA Method 525.2 is an SPE-GC-MS method for the analysis of organic contaminants in drinking water. In order to achieve the low detection limits, water samples are extracted and concentrated prior to injection into the GC-MS. Automated systems remove the laborious, less accurate steps of vacuum systems and at the same time, save solvent and cost less overall. This webinar will review offline extraction methods followed by GC-MS performance throughout a treatment process and over a yearly period for select contaminants. Data showing repeatability and detection limits for calibration, IPC, laboratory fortified blanks, system suitability, and field blanks will be presented.
Participants Will Learn:
• The benefits of automated SPE, ease of use, reproducibility and sensitivity for compliance monitoring.
• How this EPA 525.2 SOP compares with your procedures for compliance monitoring.
• Sampling considerations for a drinking water treatment facility.
