Xevo TQ-GC

The Xevo TQ-GC is demonstrated to be suitable for the routine, accurate, and robust analysis and quantitation of PCBs in sediment samples. Average limits of detection for each congener group ranged from 0.010 to 0.068 μg/kg, indicating the Xevo TQ-GC can detect trace levels of PCBs in sediment samples, allowing the instrument to meet and exceed global regulatory requirements. Analytical laboratories could extend this application for PCB analysis to other types of environmental and food matrices and analyses with proper sample preparation consideration.
