The epw requirements of a QC program consist of an initial demonstration of laboratory capability, and the analysis of laboratory reagent blanks, fortified blanks and quality control samples as a continuing check on performance.
EPA Method 200.2
Please contact the webmaster here. This method provides sample preparation procedures for the determination of total recoverable analytes in groundwaters, surface waters, drinking waters, wastewaters, and, with the exception of silica, in solid type samples such as sediments, sludges and soils. Specific instructions on accomplishing the described aspects of the QC program are discussed in the analytical methods used.
Dependent on analytical method used. Boron and silica from the glassware will grow into the sample solution during and following sample processing.
A series of laboratory reagent blanks can be used to monitor and indicate the contamination effect. Then, metals and toxic elements are extracted from either solid samples or the undissolved portion of aqueous samples by covering the beaker with a watch glass and refluxing the sample in the dilute acid mixture for 30 020.2.
Nitric and hydrochloric acids are dispensed into a beaker containing an accurately weighed or measured, well mixed, homogeneous aqueous or solid sample.
The test methods page continues to expand and improve. Method information displayed is provided for informational purposes only.
Please contact us for assistance. In sample preparation, contamination is of prime concern.

Please call for availability. Each laboratory determining total recoverable elements is required to operate a formal quality control QC program. Sample preparation procedure for spectrochemical determination of total recoverable elements. If you have suggestions for improvement, we would enjoy hearing from you. After extraction, the solubilzed analytes are diluted to specified volumes with ASTM Type I water, mixed and either centrifuged or allowed to settle overnight before analysis.
When quartz beakers are not available for extraction of solid samples, to reduce boron contamination, immediately transfer an aliquot of epw diluted extract to a plastic centrifuge tube for storage until time of analysis.
Aqueous samples are first reduced in volume by gentle heating.

Solid and aqueous samples are prepared in a similar manner for analysis. Sample preparation procedure for spectrochemical determination of total recoverable elements Summary: No warranty express or implied is made as to the website accuracy, completeness, or applicability such as the age of a method and whether or not it applies to your project. Chemical interferences are matrix dependent and cannot be documented previous to analysis.
The laboratory is required to maintain performance records that define the quality of data generated. The work area, including bench top and fume hood, should be periodically cleaned in order to eliminate environmental contamination. Environmental Protection Agency Report, Revision 2.
