Volatile Organic Compound Analysis Using USEPA Method 8260D

USEPA Method 8260 is a procedure used to determine Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in a variety of matrices. The VOCs are sampled and introduced to a Gas Chromatograph (GC) via purge and trap, direct injection or distillation with purge and trap being the most commonly used technique for VOC preparation. In July of 2018, the USEPA released Method 8260D, this new method incorporated several changes including new BFB tune criteria, analyte additions, and blank requirements. This application will examine purge and trap sampling of VOCs in water and soil matrices.
