The measurement of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in drinking and wastewater is a well-established analytical test in water and environmental laboratories, with numerous regulatory drivers. These tests are used to provide supporting data for various regulatory requirements including; discharge consent limits set in environmental permits issued by the Environment Agency and regulatory limits in potable water set and enforced by the Drinking Water Inspectorate.
Static headspace extraction with gas chromatography mass spectrometry (HS-GC-MS) is an established technique for this analysis. This application note demonstrates how automation, such as autospiking and Maestro PrepAhead, enables the new Anatune High Throughput Fully Automated VOC robotic solution to provide, high data quality and robust analysis for water and environmental laboratories seeking to increase sample numbers, solve sample backlog issues or reduce cost per test due to improved right first-time determinations.
