General description

Volatile Organic Compounds 1 - WP proficiency testing material is produced in accordance with ISO/IEC 17043:2010. Also referred to as non-Potable water or Water Pollution sample, this sample is produced according to TNI requirements. However, please note, this sample may include non-TNI analytes as well. The higher criteria from the TNI tables mimic the levels common to wastewater samples. The PT portfolio allows our test components to offer significant performance data to monitor and prove competency to customers, accreditation bodies or both.

Supelco® is a global proficiency testing (PT) provider that manufactures best-in-class environmental and pharmaceutical PT products. Most water PT samples are available as concentrates or ready-to-use volumes giving the end-user flexibility in selecting samples that will fit their exact needs. Our WP program is designed to meet the quality assurance requirements, thereby ensuring the analytical competence of your laboratory.
These samples are typically provided in duplicate for use in case of lab mishap, for QC purposes or to analyze multiple methods.

Type of PT Scheme: Water analysis - Water Pollution (WP)

Matrix: Water Pollution/Wastewater

  • provide a comparison of performance with that of other laboratories, nationally and internationally
  • test and educate staff, provide a better understanding of the impact of incorrect results and identify areas where there may be problems
  • provide an independent evaluation of laboratory performance
  • demonstrate to clients, colleagues and accreditation bodies that there is a commitment to quality

Preparation Note

Description

  • This PT sample is packaged as a 1.2 mL concentrate.
  • The solvent for this sample is methanol.
  • The PT sample is not preserved.

Sample Preparation

  • Fill a 100 mL Class A Volumetric Flask to volume with organic-free reagent water.
  • Open ampule PE1250-1.2ML and withdraw 20 μL of the solution using a gas-tight microsyringe.
  • Inject the concentrate into the expanded area of the flask well below the surface of the water.
  • Stopper the flask and mix by gentle inversion 3 times. Excessive mixing will result in loss of volatiles and should be avoided.
  • This represents the sample for analysis.
  • DO NOT USE a matrix simulator with this sample.

Storage and Stability

Please refer to sample label for expiration date, specific storage temperature, and specific storage conditions.
