Multi-Media, Multi-Concentration Chlorinated Biphenyl Congeners Analysis, CBC01.2 (a Non-Routine Analytical Service)

You will need Adobe Reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA's PDF page to learn more.

The Statement of Work (SOW) for Analysis of Chlorinated Biphenyl (CB) Congeners describes the analytical method for CB Congeners analyses. This SOW is based on the EPA Office of Water Method 1668A and defines the means by which CB congeners are isolated, detected, quantitatively measured, and reported [including the Electronic Data Deliverable (EDD) format]. CBC01.2 includes analytical procedures for water, soil, sediment, sludge, tissue (non-human), ash, and oil/oily matrix samples, and employs High Resolution Gas Chromatography/High Resolution Mass Spectrometry (HRGC/HRMS) to analyze the samples. For an overview of changes from the last version of this SOW, please refer to the Summary of Changes from CBC01.1 (July 2009) to CBC01.2 (December 2009) (PDF) (1p 119K).
