Interpretation of Organic Data
by Roy-Keith Smith, PhD
ISBN # 1-890911-19-4
The EPA is saying that they're ready to move to a
Performance Based Measurement System (PBMS) philosophy. Is
your lab's QA/QC ready?
The analysis of environmental samples must contend with
variability. The key to consistent defendable results is
understanding and controlling that variability. That is the
underlying principle behind any QA/QC program. The PBMS
philosophy makes it your responsibility to understand,
monitor, and control the elements that may effect a good
analysis. If you can do that, then you can be confident that
the results you present actually show what was in the
In this new book, Dr. Roy-Keith Smith takes you back to the
principles of quality assurance and quality control and
applies them to the analysis of environmental samples.
Starting with sample preparation, he proceeds through
instrument preparation and calibration, then to instrument
performance, and finally to the actual presentation of the
results. Along the way he makes sure that you understand and
consider the important factors that might affect results
such as matrix interference and laboratory contamination.
For the readers that work in a laboratory, this book focuses your
thinking about how you conduct analysis and guides you toward
establishing an appropriate framework within which to conduct your
work. It accomplishes this by concentrating on why the quality
control is performed. For final users of data, this book provides
you with the fundamental understanding necessary to follow what went
on in the laboratory with your sample.
