Pegasus® BT ! EPA Method 8270 Semivolatile Organic Compounds Analysis on the Benchtop GC-TOFMS

DOCUMENT: Application | Ref: 203-821-530Download
Category: Environmental, Separation Science Mass Spectrometry

This application note details the performance of the Pegasus BT for EPA Method 8270, and demonstrates how to meet and exceed the method requirements. The sensitivity surpasses what most laboratories are currently achieving for this method, expanding the typical linear dynamic range and sample throughput. The StayClean ion source will further increase uptime as it is extremely low maintenance. Ref. 203-821-530

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) Method 8270 is used to determine the concentration of semivolatile organic compounds in extracts prepared from solid waste matrices, soils, air samples, and water samples by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). LECO has introduced a new GC Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer (GC-TOFMS) that exceeds the analytical demands of this method enabling the user to run split injections for increased uptime and still meet the sensitivity requirements of EPA Method 8270.
