When Productivity Meets Challenging Matrices: Tips and Tricks for GC/MS and Purge and Trap for EPA 8260 Compliance


As analytical workloads have increased, labs analyzing Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in soils and water by purge and trap with a gas chromatograph mass spectrometer (P&T and GC/MS) according to EPA Method 8260 are facing challenges in maintaining efficiency, productivity, and profitability. Autosampler reliability, moisture management, carryover, contamination, and linearity over a dynamic range combined with high cost of helium and supply chain, are a few of the causes affecting labs’ operational efficiency.
Discover how the Teledyne Tekmar Atomx XYZ P&T System and the PerkinElmer GCMS 2400 System can help labs performing VOC analysis, according to EPA 8260, with helium gas savings and with efficient sample prep including improved water management, reduced peak interference, increased column lifespan, and reduced carryover and contamination from sample to sample. With the intuitive PerkinElmer SimplicityChrom CDS Software, fast data processing and review enable even more productivity, with any expertise level lab staff.
Join our 30-minute presentation, where you will discover strategies to conquer the typical analytical challenges posed by P&T with GC/MS while optimizing results and maximizing uptime. The latest technologies compliant with EPA 8260 will be presented, ensuring you stay at the forefront of environmental analysis.
