Newly Published EPA RCRA Method 6800 Supports AIT Technology

Calibration-less Elemental & Speciated Analysis Brings Unprecedented


PITTSBURGH, Feb. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Applied Isotope Technologies ("AIT") announced today, that the EPA Method 6800 has been published in January 2008 edition of the Federal Register as a part of the methods section of a broad set of US environmental statutes known as RCRA (Resource Conservation and Recovery Act). This updated version of the method includes a long list of samples and data, including soil, water, tissue, yeast, hair, industrial material, etc. AIT sells products that support Method 6800.

Matt Pamuku, CEO and President of AIT said, "Method 6800 now joins a group of critical testing methods for the US and the world to follow, so that we can help protect our environment and health of its inhabitants. This powerful method is one of the most accurate and fail-proof tests that has ever been invented." Mr. Pamuku continued, "As a singular source of products, AIT is proud to have supported Method 6800 in the past, as it went through ten years of scientific scrutiny as a draft EPA method."

The EPA RCRA Method 6800 provides a powerful method that incorporates an advanced version of the venerable isotope dilution technique, accepted as one of the most reliable analytical tools in the analytical chemistry field. The unique approach detailed in the Method 6800 provides the ability, for the first time, to obtain results that can withstand legal challenge in the courts. This is a critical and much valued attribute for many regulatory agencies, such as the Environmental Protection Agency, Centers for Disease Control and Federal Drug Administration, and communities affected by industrial pollution.

In addition to legal defensibility, the Method 6800 is also uniquely helpful in identifying sources of errors in other methods. Over the past decade, a number of peer-reviewed publications have utilized this method to better understand and optimize the performance of other analytical techniques. Mr. Pamuku commented, "The analysts who adopted the Method 6800 are always delighted that such performance can be achieved without calibration curves which require long, frequent, and often expensive and frustrating work."

AIT develops and sells Method 6800 compliant products that can be used in a special class of instruments called mass spectrometers that are widely used in almost every analytical laboratory involved in environment-related analytical work. AIT's mercury products, for example, helps accurately identify and measure highly toxic mercury species, such as methylmercury that can be found in some of the popular food sources, such as fish, as a consequence of industrial pollution. AIT products facilitate detection at less than 10 parts per trillion levels without compromising accuracy which is particularly an important consideration for supertoxin analysis.
