Technical Support for Labs
Standard Analytical Methods
In support of Environmental Response Laboratory Network (ERLN), the National Homeland Security Research Center has prepared Standardized Analytical Methods for Environmental Restoration Following Homeland Security Events (SAM). EPA formed a workgroup of its own experts and those of other agencies to create this manual. These experts reviewed many analytical methods, seeking to balance the use of existing techniques and methodologies against the goal of obtaining consistent results. The workgroup selected methods for measuring biological, chemical, and radiological agents in a variety of sample types, such as solids, drinking water, and air.
