Superfund Analytical Methods (SFAM01.0) Statement of Work

ASB has combined the legacy organic and inorganic methods in one Statement of Work (SOW) and has added classical chemistry techniques. This SOW defines the analytical methods for the isolation, detection, and quantitative measurement of 54 Trace Volatiles [5 analytes by Selected Ion Monitoring (SIM)], 54 Low/Medium Volatiles, 71 Semivolatiles (20 analytes by SIM), 21 Pesticides, 9 Aroclors, 23 metals (including Mercury), Cyanide, Anions, Hexavalent Chromium, and Total Organic Carbon (TOC) in aqueous/water, soil/sediment, waste, or wipe samples as applicable.  In addition, the SOW specifies requirements for extraction by the Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) and the Synthetic Precipitation Leaching Procedure (SPLP).

High Resolution Superfund Methods (HRSM02.0) Statement of Work

This Statement of Work (SOW) defines the analytical methods for the isolation, detection, and quantitative measurement of seventeen 2,3,7,8-substituted tetra through octa Chlorinated Dibenzo-p-Dioxins (CDDs) and Chlorinated Dibenzofurans (CDFs), and Chlorinated Biphenyl Congeners (CBCs) in aqueous/water, soil/sediment, sludge, tissue (non-human), biosolids, ash, oil, and oily matrices. Analyses are performed using a High Resolution Gas Chromatography/High Resolution Mass Spectrometry (HRGC/HRMS) method.
