Recorded Webinars

"Preparing to Walk the Fenceline" – EPA 325 New Method Developments

Presented by Heidi Hayes, Technical Director, Eurofins Air Toxics
Deficient areas in EPA Method 325 were addressed through revised provisions recently approved by the EPA as Alternative Test Method (ATM) - 122. This webinar will cover how ATM-122 requirements affect previously collected benzene data and how the updates will impact your fenceline monitoring compliance program. Additionally, lessons learned and best practices will be presented, preparing you to confidently “walk the fenceline” in 2018.

PFAS Analysis Using Total Oxidizable Precursors Assay

Presented by Chuck Neslund, Scientific Officer for Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories Environmental
A new approach to PFAS analysis, incorporating the technique known as Total Oxidizable Precursors Assay (TOP), can be set-up and commercialized that converts polyfluorinated precursor compounds to a more studied and analyzable perfluorinated chemistries such as PFOA and PFOS. This presentation will discuss the set-up and application of TOP and it's utility for risk assessment.

Sampling and Analysis for Selenium Species in Waters, Sediments/Soils, Biological Tissues and Industrial Matrices

Presented by Robert Brunette, Director of Business Development, Eurofins Frontier Global Sciences
This webinar will examine why it is important to measure selenium speciation; sampling methods and trace metals analysis methods including EPA 1669; common interferences; natural and anthropogenic sources of selenium; method detection and reporting limits; different forms of selenium; field sampling, sample handling, and shipping to the laboratory.

Cooler Packing

Presented by Nicole Maljovec, Steven Davies and Anneliese Owen, Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories Environmental
Have questions about the contents of your cooler, how to pack them up and what to do if something does seem correct? This webinar provides you with answers to frequently asked questions about cooler packing and ensures you understand the correct steps to take when packing up your samples to send back to the lab for analysis.

Perfluorinated Compound Monitoring in Public Water Supplies after the Health Advisories and UCMR 3 Findings

Presented by Andy Eaton, Vice President and Technical Director, Eurofins Eaton Analytical
This webinar provides attendees with information on the occurrence of trace level perfluorinated compounds in public water supplies and other municipal sources, focusing on measurements below the reporting limits used in the UCMR 3 program and expanding the list of perfluorinated compounds. It discusses some of the options for monitoring in response to both the health advisory levels for PFOS and PFOA and the occurrence information from the UCMR 3 monitoring with suggested activities by utilities in terms of monitoring.

Sampling And Analysis Of Arsenic Species In Waters, Sediments/Soils, And Biological Tissues

(Recording coming soon)
Presented by Robert Brunette, Director of Business Development, Eurofins Frontier Global Sciences
The need for Accurate, Trace Level Detection analysis methods for measuring the toxic forms of metals is more important than ever for environmental consultants, remediation engineers and regulatory agencies tasked with determining potential risk and clean up strategies. This webinar will focus on the following key aspects:
- Why Measure Arsenic Speciation? - How Much Of The Total Metals Are (1) In The Toxic Form? (2) Bioavailability (3) Environmentally Mobile or Non Mobile Forms 
- Getting The Right Start: EPA 1669 – Verified Trace Metals Clean Sampling Equipment, Sampling Methods and Trace Metals Analysis Methods 
- Natural and Anthropogenic Sources Of Arsenic – Sources Of Arsenic In The Environment 
- What Forms Of Arsenic Are Of Concern and What Forms Can Be Measured? Inorganic Arsenic, As(III), As(V), MMA, DMA, Other As Species 
- What Analysis Methods Are Available For Arsenic Speciation: Fully Validated EPA Method 1632, HPLC-ICP-MS 
- Arsenic Speciation Method Common Interferences 
- Arsenic Speciation Method Detection And Reporting Limits – Water, Soil, Sediments, Biological Tissues 

Current Status for the Analysis of PFAS in Environmental Samples

Presented by Charles Neslund,Technical Director, Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories Environmental
The group of compounds referred to as PFAS, are considered emerging contaminants. Even though PFAS compounds have been in use for many years, the label of "emerging" indicates that regulations, analytical methodologies, reporting limits and treatment technologies are still evolving. The rapidness with which compound lists, methods, matrices and limits are changing is a challenge for all of us in the environmental community. We will evaluate the current state of methodologies used for the analysis of PFAS compounds and what may lie ahead for this analysis venue.

Sample Integrity from Field to Lab

Presented by Nicole Leja, President, Eurofins Spectrum Analytical
This webinar will focus on maintaining sample integrity from collection to submittal. Items reviewed will include proper sample homogenization, container decontamination and ID labeling in the field. Details that are mandatory for completing the Chain of Custody form will be explained. Examples of proper and improper procedures will be included as a resource to field staff.

UCMR4 - A Primer

Presented by Andy Eaton, Vice President and Technical Director, Eurofins Eaton Analytical
UCMR4 monitoring is scheduled to begin in January 2018 and will affect all utilities serving more than 10,000 population. This webinar will review the requirements of UCMR4, focusing on differences from UCMR3 and some of the unique aspects of UCMR4 and provide utilities with potential tools to assist with compliance and critical actions to take in 2017.
