Volatile organic compounds are important environmental analytes of interest. To prepare a water sample for analysis of volatile organic components, often purge and trap technology is used to separate and preconcentrate the analytes for introduction into a GC/MS.  During purge and trap a specific volume of sample is purged with an inert gas and trapped onto a sorbent trap.  The sorbent trap is then heated and the analytes on the trap are transferred to a GC/MS for separation and analysis.  
This webinar will provide an overview of purge and trap for sample preparation.  Established US EPA methods will be discussed.  Optimized and innovative conditions will be described to show how changes within the scope of the methodology will affect results.  Increased productivity and lower costs, while maintaining performance, are the goal.

Who should attend:
•    Technicians
•    Organic Lab Managers
•    Laboratory QA Managers

Length of webinar:  Approximately 1 hour

Course Fee:
$90 ACIL Member, $100 All others, $400 Groups of 5 or more
