Dynamic quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) program to maximize the use of on-site measurement

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The use of on-site mobile laboratories at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has increased within the last year to accommodate the diverse analytical requirements of demands for the Environmental Restoration Project (ERP). The purpose of the mobile laboratory is to provide sample results with the appropriate QC components within a near real time (i.e. < 8 hours) to aid in a real time decision process such as determining the extent of contamination and/or where to focus the sampling efforts. To meet the data quality objectives (DQOS) of ERP, a flexible QA/QC program needs to exist. By developing a QA/QC program ... continued below

Description

The use of on-site mobile laboratories at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has increased within the last year to accommodate the diverse analytical requirements of demands for the Environmental Restoration Project (ERP). The purpose of the mobile laboratory is to provide sample results with the appropriate QC components within a near real time (i.e. < 8 hours) to aid in a real time decision process such as determining the extent of contamination and/or where to focus the sampling efforts. To meet the data quality objectives (DQOS) of ERP, a flexible QA/QC program needs to exist. By developing a QA/QC program containing the capability to measure extraction efficiency and instrument sensitivity and by participating in the DQO process, the appropriate QC can easily be tailored to provide quick and inexpensive analytical data while still meeting the project requirements. An QA/QC program, consisting of both static and dynamic elements, can be tailored to meet the ERP objectives.
