Best Practices for Collecting Soil Samples for VOC Analysis
|October 27, 2021
ABOUT THIS WEBINAR:
When it comes to getting accurate and reliable data on volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in soil samples, collecting and preserving the samples correctly is the most important step in the process – the data are only as good as the samples you get. This webinar will take you through the alternatives for soil sample collecting and provide recommendations for getting consistent and usable data.
The options for soil sampling in US EPA Method 5035 will be reviewed and discussed, including the advantages and disadvantages of doing methanol preservation using methanol and sodium bisulfurate. The EPA-listed En Core® Sampler and its "no preservative technology will be compared to methanol preservation methods, along with demonstrations of how both are employed. Tools that can help you collect the right amount of soil for methanol preserved samples, the Terra Core® sampler and others will also be covered in this webinar.
