EPA Publishes SW-846 Methods 8260D and 8270E

Posted July 16 2018

Methods 8260D and 8270E are used to determine volatile (VOCs) and semivolatile organic compounds (SVOCs) in a variety of matrices by gas chromatography with a mass spectrometer detector (GC/MS). Method revisions include the option of hydrogen as a carrier gas, use of advanced measurement techniques, (e.g. selected ion monitoring, chemical ionization, and tandem mass spectrometry) and updated language for lower limit of quantitation and method blanks. In addition, tuning requirements were updated to harmonize with other EPA program methods.
