Reducing Cycle Time for Analysis of 1,4-Dioxane Using an Automated Purge and Trap Sample Prep System
With advances in instrumentation and without regulatory method constraints, 1,4-dioxane can be detected at the part-per-billion (ppb) level, despite its poor purge efficiency. This application will manipulate purge and trap, as well as GC–MS parameters, to create a more efficient method to reduce cycle times. This study will utilize a Teledyne Tekmar Atomx Automated Sample Prep System in conjunction with an Agilent 7890/5975 GC–MS. A linear calibration and method detection limits (MDLs) for 1,4-dioxane will be established using this method.
