Screening of Pollutants in Water Samples and Extracts from Passive Samplers Using LC–MS and GC–MS
This article describes the GC–MS and LC–MS screening methods developed by the Environmental Agency for England and Wales for the analysis of both low-volume water samples and extracts obtained from various designs of passive samplers.
Thermo Scientific™ SureStop™ vials, designed as part of the Advanced Vial Closure System (AVCS), remove subjectivity around achieving the optimal seal compression when closing a vial. SureStop vials offer the sealing and performance characteristics of a crimp top vial with the versatility and convenience of a threaded vial. The positive feedback design of the vial finish prevents over tightening of the closure. Learn more
