Optimization Techniques for Performance of USEPA Methods 5030, 5035, and Determinative Methods 524.2 and 8260 utilizing the Atomx Concentrator/Multimatrix Autosampler and an Agilent 7890A GC and 5975 inert XL MSD
Environmental Analysts are frequently tasked with developing methods to meet United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) Method requirements. While the methods are written clearly, certain options are left to the analysts’ discretion. It is the intent of this paper to optimize the parameters required for acceptable performance within the methodology guidelines. Parameters for experimentation include analytical column choices, glassware options, inlet configurations and purge method, oven profiles, inlet profiles, detector settings, and instrument programming requirements.
