Georgina Brooks, Senior Project Manager, SGS AXYS, will present Tuesday, August 27 at the Dioxin 2019 conference on Application of APGC-MS/MS to EPA 1600 Series Methods for Analysis of PCDD/PCDF, PCBs and Other Halogenated Compounds.

The presentation is from 12:10 pm to 1 pm, Room 2-B, Kyoto International Conference Centre, Kyoto, Japan. It is part of the Waters Dolce Seminar at the 39th International Symposium on Halogenated Persistent Organic Pollutants (Dioxin 2019) August 25-30.

Brooks has 25 years of experience managing complex, multi-agency projects on remediation of dioxin-contaminated sites and biomonitoring to understand dioxin exposure. The presentation describes proposed changes to Method 1613B to incorporate MS/MS approaches, and to replace the method QC protocols that are specific to 1613B high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) with analogous ones (achieving the same purpose), appropriate for an MS/MS system.
