WARNING! DATA USE RESTRICTIONS

Read Carefully Before Using

The EPA does all it can to ensure that the identity of survey participants cannot be disclosed. All direct identifiers, as well as any characteristics that might lead to identifications, are omitted from the data.

CTEPP STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE FOR EXTRACTING AND PREPARING DUST AND SOIL SAMPLES FOR ANALYSIS OF POLAR PERSISTENT ORGANIC POLLUTANTS (SOP-5.15).

Impact/Purpose:

The CTEPP study is the largest aggregate exposure study of preschool children (ages 2 to 5 years) conducted in the United States. The CTEPP study was designed in part to fill in critical data gaps on young children’s exposures to pesticides in response to the Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA) of 1996.

Description:

The method for extracting and preparing a dust or soil sample for analysis of polar persistent organic pollutants is summarized in this SOP. It covers the extraction, concentration, and derivatization of samples that are to be analyzed by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry.
