SUBJECT COMMENT
Equipments and CapacitySince February 2006, the Laboratory had acquired a L2000 DX analyzer and had received training for sampling and analyses of PCB in transformer oil and soils. We don’t have costs to external clients for these analyses because they are realized as part of the PCB National Inventory coordinated by CIGEA (Cuba). We have a Soxhlet extraction equipment and a High Resolution Gas Chromatograph with a capìllary column + FID but we don’t have the appropriated detector and standards to determine POPs. We have a great experience over stack gases sampling and other pollutants in effluents but there presently no capacity to monitor POPs in ambient air or other media.
