Quick-Turn Study - (non-scheduled proficiency test that is available at any time)

Preparation Note

This standard consists of a 2 mL flame-sealed ampule containing the Volatiles in Soil concentrate and a 30 mL ampule containing approximately 30 grams of Matrix soil. The solvent for the Volatiles in Soil concentrate is Methanol. This standard may not contain all of the compounds listed on the Data Reporting Forms. The evaluation of results will be based on study statistics. For analytes not detected report as zero “0” or a “<” and your detection limit. This PT sample is intended for methods USEPA SW846 Method 1311 ZHE.

Sample Preparation
The sample is to be extracted using the solid waste method for sediment/soil using Zero Headspace Extraction (ZHE).
Weigh 10.0 grams of the Volatiles in Soil Matrix and charge the ZHE.
Carefully snap the top off of the Volatiles in Soil ampule.
Inject 1mL of the concentrate into the matrix by placing the syringe tip slightly below the surface of the matrix in the ZHE. Complete the analysis per your normal procedures.
On the provided report form provide all of the requested information; note that the results of the analysis are to be reported on a wet weight basis.
In addition to all requested information, describe any unusual problems encountered in the extraction or analysis of the sample on the report form.
The method used must be reported. Report on a wet weight basis, do not correct results for moisture content.
