The acid silica gel Section 7.
Dilute 10 uL of the precision and recovery I standard Section 7. The tap water rinse is followed by. If sample pH is greater than 9, adjust to pH with sulfuric acid. It is suggested that the QC Check Sample be analyzed at least quarterly. At the proper rate of concentration, the flow of solvent into the receiving flask will be steady, but no bumping or visible boiling of the extract will occur.
Seal the vial and label with the sample number. Rather, bring the extract back to its previous volume e.
One liter of aqueous samples i containing one percent solids will contain 10 grams of solids. If an extract is to be reanalyzed and evaporation has occurred, do not add more instrument internal standard solution. Open the stopcock until the extract is within 1 mm of the sodium sulfate. Mechanical techniques may still be necessary to complete the phase separation.
Use within five days of baking.

If glassware is first rinsed with solvent, then the dish water may be disposed of in the sewer. Aqueous samples are filtered after spiking with the labeled compounds. Place 30 to 40 mL of toluene in the receiver and to mL of toluene in the flask. Five calibration points are employed. The references and bibliography at the end 16133b Reference 13 are particularly comprehensive mdthod dealing with the general subject of laboratory safety.
However, given the low toxicity of this compound relative to the other dioxins and furans, the potential decrease in accuracy is not considered significant. Apply the concentrated extract to the column. In this case, an isomer-specificity I test standard containing the most closely eluted isomers listed in Table 5 CIL EDF, or j equivalent may be used. An IPR is performed prior to the first time this method is used and any time the method or instrumentation is modified.
These procedures are described in Sections If solvent loss has occurred, the solution should be replaced. Remove the Snyder column and rinse the glass joint into the receiver with small portions of solvent.
Rinse the feed tube with approximately 2 mL of solvent. Each sample requires 1. Under those conditions, sensitivity changes that might occur during the analysis can be more effectively monitored. Additional information on laboratory safety can be emthod in References In this event, adjust the Methid and repeat the verification test Section Environmental Protection Agency, and approved for publication.
The practices in References 2 and 14 are highly recommended. Report the percent lipid content, so that the data user can calculate the concentration on a lipid basis if desired. Section Safety Elute the interfering compounds with mL hexane and discard the eluate.
EPA Method 1613B
Drain each portion through the sodium sulfate into the concentrator. 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.
After filtration, the particles and filter are extracted using the SDS procedure in Section Repeat the acid washing until no color is visible in the aqueous layer, to a maximum of four washings.
If interferences preclude identification, a new aliquot of sample must be extracted, further cleaned up, and analyzed. Between samples, three 2- to 3-mL aliquots of solvent should be rinsed down the feed tube into a waste beaker.
If SPE is not to be used, and the sample is visibly absent particles, proceed to Section Collect each extract in a round-bottom flask. Update QC charts to form a graphic representation of continued laboratory performance. Mwthod is also required with any metgod discharge permits and regulations.
All materials used in the analysis shall be demonstrated to be free from interferences by running reference matrix method blanks initially and with each sample batch epaa started through the extraction process on a given hour shift, to a maximum of 20 samples.
Connect the column to the detector Section 6.
The washer should be run through a cycle before being used again for other kethod. Before using a cleanup procedure, the analyst must demonstrate that the requirements of Section 9. If s and X for all compounds meet the acceptance criteria, system performance is acceptable and analysis of blanks and samples may begin.
Equivalent performance may be achieved using apparatus and materials other than those specified here. Toluene is difficult to concentrate using the K-D technique unless a water bath fed by a steam generator is used. The sample matrix may be amorphous for some samples. Remove any non-aqueous liquid present and reserve the maximum amount filtered from the sample Section
