The objective of the 1 day course is to review the analytical process for obtaining data of known and documented quality for Gas Chromatography (GC) and Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS). The course includes practical examples of (1) performing testing using GC and GC/MS (2) preparation techniques for organic analysis (3) identify and implement corrective actions and (4) perform the necessary laboratory data review. The course is designed to help laboratory personnel improve their understanding of the science and the regulated methods. Test methods include EPA 500, 600 series for analysis of water. The latest versions of these methods will be presented and discussed.

This seminar is being held in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Association of Accredited Environmental Laboratories June meeting. For more information about this meeting, go to
