Method LL-NDMA

Low Level N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) by GC/MS

This method is an internally developed method that has approval from the California Department of Health Services for the analysis of N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA).  Samples are analyzed by either low resolution or high resolution GC/MS.

Reporting limits achieved by high resolution GC/MS are 0.5 ppt (parts per trillion or ng/L).  Reporting limits achieved by low resolution GC/MS are 10 ppt.

No chemical preservatives are required for the water samples that will be analyzed for NDMA.  Chemical preservatives have the potential to cause interferences which may elevate the reporting limits for NDMA.
