Optimised Analysis of SVOCs with EPA 8270E

This webinar will overview a sensitive method used to analyse semivolatile organic compounds (SVOCs) on an Agilent 7000E Gas Chromatograph/Triple Quadrupole (GC/TQ) Mass Spectrometer. The utilization of GC/TQ instrumentation for analysis of SVOCs offers significant advantages:

  • Excellent selectivity afforded by Multiple Reaction Monitoring (MRM) mode results in faster batch review and increased confidence due to the elimination of matrix interferences often present when using GC/MS acquisition modes; and
  • Better sensitivity enables smaller extraction volumes which improves sustainability, reduces waste, and decreases costs associated with sample preparation, solvent usage, and waste disposal.
  • Key analytical techniques which facilitated this work will be discussed.
  • Manufacturer’s recommended tune protocol for mass accuracy and resolution checks in accordance with US EPA Method 8270E will also be discussed.
