Course Description: 
EPA is in the process of developing analytical methods for non-drinking water matrices but these methods are not yet available. In the absence of an EPA method, data users need to understand the modifications laboratories are implementing or not implementing in order to determine whether data quality objectives are being achieved. Some common differences within the laboratory community include the use of isotope dilution, sample preparation steps,  use/evaluation of secondary transition ions, and acceptance criteria for labeled surrogates. 

This webinar will provide an update on the analytical methods and tools for evaluating PFAS and 1,4-Dioxane. In addition it will also provide a look at some interpretation issues associated with inorganic parameters. The webinar will also provide training on the impact of general quality control (QC) issues including assessment of method and matrix QC results for these analytical methods. With this information, the data user will be able to evaluate the data received to determine the accuracy, precision, and ultimate usability of their PFAS, 1,4-dioxane, and inorganics data.
