I’m not sure what changed. Wed Jan 04, 2: Please add to the discussion any other ideas you may have. Follow us on Twitter: So we installed less intensive lights and tried to do the extraction in the dark as much as possible which solved our problem.

Does anyone have any ideas on where this maybe happening????? It turned out to be the lights. This is why I think it’s in the extraction.

B Contamination from sample carryover: I have noted the formation of the quinone from anthracene so assume I am loosing both to oxidation. For these latter analytes 8 replicate reagent water samples were analyzed, except for PCB 6 replicates and toxaphene 7 replicatesand except for bis 2-ethylhexyl phthalate and di-n-butyl phthalate for which 7 replicates of fortified tap water were analyzed.

The method contains a large amount of additional information. If you weren’t the lowest bid, we don’t get to play with your eqiupment. Thu Jan 23, 1: Mon Mar 28, 5: Fri Dec 09, 8: Extracts can be held up to 30 days. A method detection limit MDL must be determined for each analyte. Also, if I run the extract as soon as they are ready we get low recoveries but if we wait to run them the compounds disappear completely.


I have tried adding preservative sodium sulfite and altering the amount of 1: We use an automated system setup of Horizon extractors atlantic C18 disks and a Horizon Dry Vap for drying and concentration. Are the recoveries of the other compounds low too?

Analyte Loss EPA – Chromatography Forum

Organic compound analytes, internal standards, and surrogates are extracted from a 1L sample by passing it through a disk or cartridge containing a solid matrix with a e;a bonded C18 organic phase [liquid-solid extraction LSE ]. Samples can be held for 14 days generally see Sample Handling section of the method for exceptions.

Please, ANY ideas are welcome. Thu Nov 05, 3: My dperylene along with the benzo a pyrene is also a major problem. Please contact us for all available analytes which can be tested by EPA Method Subscribe to our eNewsletter with daily, weekly or monthly updates: The past is there to guide us into the future, not to dwell in. We didn’t used to have this problem and are now starting to see this happening in our If I rerun the extract several days in a row I can watch the recovery get lower each day for these compounds.

Organic compounds – Instrument used for this test: We are having the same issue. We adjust the QC to match the samples which are ea more like than 2. Major loss of Anthracene, Benzo a pyrene and Perylene-d Rinsing apparatus replacing syringes and injection port liners as needed can minimize contamination.

I haven’t tried to avoid light although our sample bottles and chromatography vials are all amber glass. Thu Mar 03, 8: Organic compounds are extracted from the LSE with small quantities of ethyl acetate followed by methylene chloride with further evaporation of the solvent.

Home Chromatography Sample Prep. For chlordane data, see alpha- and gamma-chlordane, and for PCBs see specific Aroclors. Please contact the webmaster here. I have tried bypassing the dry vap as well as spiking before the dry vap and get similar results. Separation Eps offers free learning from the experts covering methods, applications, webinars, eSeminars, videos, tutorials for users of liquid e;a, gas chromatography, mass spectrometry, sample preparation and related analytical techniques.

That could be the problem. Analyte Loss EPA I am having a little less recovery with the other PAHs, but Anthracene is definately being oxidized because I can see the anthraquinone on the MS. I’ll also try to keep the lights out a bit 525. see if that helps too. Kelso, Washington Laboratory Method information displayed is provided for informational purposes only. We actually don’t use sodium sulfate to dry.
