How to Ensure Accurate Measurement of Dioxins and PCBs
The most accurate method for measuring dioxins and related compounds, such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), is isotope dilution–selected ion monitoring–mass spectrometry (ID-SIM-MS). To use the method correctly, however, analysts need to take various factors into account, such as proper spiking of the extraction and injection standards and establishing proper quality control approaches that are applicable to ID-SIM-MS.
Improving Workflow through Selectivity with UltraPerformance Convergence Chromatography™.
Designed to solve routine and complex separation challenges, the ACQUITY UPC2™ System enables unparalleled selectivity through combinations of solvent and stationary phase that are simply not possible by any other chromatographic technique.

In addition, it dramatically streamlines the entire workflow of sample analysis due to its ability to directly inject high organic extracts resulting from a majority of sample preparation techniques.
