Total PCB and Congener Analysis PT II - Method Selection and Data Utilization

Tuesday, August 16, 2016 - 1:30 P.M. EDT

About this webinar:

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are one of the most frequently determined environmental parameters, yet considerable confusion may still exist regarding appropriate utilization of the available analytical methodology. 

This presentation expands the concepts described in Part I. In Part 2, we will compare and contrast the various analytical methods used for determination of PCBs, and review consequential issues associated with method selection, data interpretation and utilization, and regulatory oversight. Topics will include items that affect final data quality, including the potential for positive or negative bias in reported results. Additionally, the impact of artifacts and ambient background levels on field collection and laboratory procedures will be reviewed.

Topics the presentation will cover include:

  • Summary of analytical methods - what do they actually measure?
  • Strengths and weaknesses of each method - what is the appropriate application?
  • Data utilization, interpretation, and frequently asked questions

Who should attend?

  • Commercial & Industrial companies
  • Consultants & Engineers
  • Federal, State & Municipal entities

A question and answer session will immediately follow the presentation. At the conclusion of each webinar, you will be asked for your feedback and opinions for future webinar topics to be developed by TestAmerica.


New for 2016
