Selected Analytical Methods for Environmental Remediation and Recovery (SAM) - Home

EPA’s Selected Analytical Methods for Environmental Remediation and Recovery (SAM) identifies analytical methods to be used by laboratories performing analyses of environmental and building material samples following a contamination event.  Laboratories may use this information to evaluate the nature and extent of contamination and assess decontamination efficacy.  In addition to providing the SAM document in its entirety, this site contains a tool that allows users to easily query the SAM methods.
