Using EPA Method 8270 and the Pegasus GC-TOFMS to Characterize Semivolatile Analytes from Contaminated Soil Extracts

The LECO Pegasus GC-TOFMS was used to analyze contaminated soil sample extracts following the rigorous EPA Method 8270 criteria. The fast acquisition rate of Pegasus, coupled with powerful data manipulation and interpretation algorithms, provided full mass range analysis of complex mixtures of semivolatile organic compounds in less than 600 seconds. By using the Pegasus, environmental lab productivity can be increased by over an order of magnitude as compared with conventionalMS instrumentation.
