There is a need for fast and reliable PFAS analyses to monitor drinking water quality. We report on the use of semi-automated sample preparation with EPA methods 533 and 537.1, assessing performance and processing time.
Environmental laboratories with high sample throughput often wish to analyze PCDD/Fs and PCBs in separate fractions. The cleanup method described here results in complete separation, and offers an alternative to fully manual or fully automated cleanup.
The persistent nature and toxicity of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) lead to high demands for quick and accurate sample analysis. This article describes the use of automated sample processing techniques such as pressurized liquid extraction and automated column chromatography cleanup that are suitable for environmental sample analysis.
