Adjust the reflux rate to match the rate of percolation through the sand mthod silica beds until water removal lessens the restriction to toluene flow.

Repeat the addition of solvent and concentrate once more. Solid samples are collected as grab samples using wide-mouth jars.

These records include the following, at a minimum: Remove the Snyder column and 1631b the glass joint into the receiver with small portions of solvent. If particular circumstances require the use of a cleanup procedure, the analyst may use any or all of the procedures below or any other appropriate procedure. Ca – The concentration of the compound in the extract.

Section Safety Each laboratory that uses this method must demonstrate the ability to generate acceptable results using the procedure in Section 9. Once the appropriate e;a has been determined, the sample must be homogenized.

Open the stopcock until the extract is within 1 mm of the sodium metthod. Assistance in evaluating the health hazards of particular laboratory conditions may be obtained from certain consulting laboratories and from State Departments of Health or Labor, many of which have an industrial health service. Place the apparatus in the hot water bath. Reinjection of another aliquot of the sample extract will not resolve the problem. Reflux the sample for a total of 16 to 24 hours. The washer should be run through a cycle before being used again for other clothing.


Statistics on initial performance Section 9. Mechanical techniques may still be necessary to complete the phase separation. Seal the vial and label with the sample number.

Loosen cap in a hood to vent excess pressure. The tap water rinse is followed by. Rinse the contents of the bottle with two mL portions of hexane and pour through the sodium sulfate into the apparatus. If interferences preclude identification, a new aliquot of sample must be extracted, further cleaned up, and analyzed.

In some cases, reducing methd temperature of jethod sample to freezing or to dry ice or liquid nitrogen temperatures can aid in the grinding process. Procedures for dilution are given in Section Softer particles can be reduced by grinding in a Wiley mill or meat grinder, by homogenization, or in a blender.

The analyst is permitted to modify the method to overcome interferences or lower the cost of measurements, provided that all performance criteria in this method are methkd.

Report the percent lipid content, so that the data user can calculate the concentration on a lipid basis if desired. Complete the quantitative transfer with several hexane rinses. If, however, any individual s exceeds the precision limit or any individual X falls outside the range for accuracy, system performance is unacceptable for that compound.

Prior to the cleanup procedures cited above, tissue extracts are cleaned up using an anthropogenic isolation column, a batch silica gel adsorption, or sulfuric acid and base back-extraction, depending on the tissue extraction procedure used. Report i the percent solids so that the result may be corrected.

The requirements for establishing method equivalency are given in Section 9.

If the size of the largest particles is i greater than 1 mm, the particle size must be reduced to 1 mm or less prior to extraction i using the procedures in Section When whole fish analysis is necessary, the entire fish is homogenized.


The results of the analysis of the blank must meet the specifications in Section 9. Place 30 to 40 mL of toluene in the receiver and to mL of toluene in the flask. The relative response RR labeled to native vs. The elution order will be the tetra- through octa- isomers.

Remix prior to extraction to prevent clumping. Proceed with column cleanups Sections The optimum technique depends upon the sample, but may include stirring, filtration through glass wool, use of phase separation paper, centrifugation, use of an ultrasonic bath with ice, addition ofNaCl, or other physical methods.

Stir for 2 to 3 hours.

EPA Method 1613B

In this event, adjust the GC and repeat the verification test Section Relative response is determined according to the procedures described below. Frequently check the apparatus for foaming during the first 2 hours of extraction. The method of reducing particle size to less than 1 mm is matrix-dependent.

In this event, correct the problem, re-prepare, extract, and clean up the sample batch and repeat the ongoing precision and recovery test Section After preparation, the sample is extracted directly using the SPE technique in Place the K-D apparatus in a hot water bath so that the entire lower rounded surface of the flask is bathed with steam.

Ongoing precision and recovery.
