MISA Organic Chemical Manufacturing Sector QA/QC Report 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY 

Twenty-six Organic Chemical Manufacturing (OCM) Sector plants were regulated under the 
MISA (Municipal-Industrial Strategy for Abatement) program to provide twelve months of 
effluent monitoring data. 

To assess the quality of the effluent monitoring data, OCM Sector plants were also required 
to submit under Regulation specified quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) data. 
The assessment of QA/QC data as discussed in this report provided information on the 
"analytical goodness" of the larger effluent monitoring database. Based on the QA/QC 
assessment, decisions on the suitability of the effluent monitoring data for use in the effluent 
limits setting process were then made. 

The QA/QC data assessment process was based on the approach outlined in the draft report 
of the Issue Resolution Committee on Quality Assurance and Quality Control. 

The QA/QC data assessment process has confirmed that the majority of the effluent 
monitoring data for the MISA OCM Sector are acceptable for use in the development of 
effluent limits. The assessment has also identified parameters, (Table 2), which wiU require 
further specific attention before being considered for limits. Parameters that were 
categorized as "found" on the basis of the Laboratory Method Detection Limit (LMDL) 
being greater than the Regulation Method Detection Limit (RMDL) are also identified in a 
table (Table 3). 

Parameters classified as "not found" for which analytical difficulties were encountered are 
listed in Tables 4 and 5. 

The GLOSSARY section defines the terms used in this report. 

Specific data used in the QA/QC assessment for each plant is shown in Appendices C and D. 

The results of the QA/QC assessment, in terms of the acceptability of individual "found" 
parameters for limit setting, are shown in Appendix E. 



MISA Organic Chemical Manufacturing Sector QA/QC Report 

I INTRODUCTION 

The Ontario Ministry of the Environment Municipal-Industrial Strategy for Abatement 
(MISA) program is a regulatory program with the ultimate goal of virtual elimination of 
persistent toxic contaminants in municipal and industrial discharges into Ontario waterways. 

MISA Effluent Monitoring Regulations were promulgated for nine industrial sectors, 
including the Organic Chemical Manufacturing (OCM) Sector. The Effluent Monitoring 
Regulations required direct dischargers to sample and analyze their effluents for a period of 
twelve consecutive months. 

This report is an assessment of the quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) data which was 
submitted by the OCM Sector plants along with the effluent monitoring data. The QA/QC 
assessment process, as outlined in the draft MISA Issue Resolution Committee Reports (1), 
was used to evaluate the suitability of the effluent monitoring data for use in the effluent 
limits setting process and to confirm the presence/absence of contaminants in the effluent, 
intake, once-through cooling water and storm water streams. 

II BACKGROUND 

Twenty-six OCM Sector plants that discharge effluent directly to surface watercourses have 
completed twelve months of intensive effluent monitoring under the MISA program. 

Twenty-two plants under the original Ontario Regulation 209/89 and its amendment O. 
Regulation 532/89 completed their monitoring on September 30, 1990. Five plants, added 
for twelve months of monitoring as of February 1, 1990 under O. Regulation 45/90 
completed their monitoring on January 31, 1991. One plant added as of August 1, 1990 
under O. Regulation 416/90, completed its monitoring on July 31, 1991. 

Two plants were shutdown in 1989-90 period for business reasons unrelated to the MISA 
program. 

Under the MISA OCM Monitoring Regulations, each plant had its own site-specific 
monitoring schedule including QA/QC requirements. The QA/QC data for each plant was 
analyzed separately. 

Generally each plant was required to collect QA/QC samples consisting of travelling blanks, 
travelling spiked blanks and duplicates/ splits both monthly to match regular daily and thrice- 
weekly parameter monitoring and quarterly to match weekly and monthly parameter 
monitoring.

MISA Organic Chemical Manufacturing Sector • QA/QC Report 

The monitoring data for the MISA OCM Sector have been published in a six-month (2) and a 
twelve-month (3) report. 

Ill THE EFFLUENT MONITORING DATABASE 

Because of the staggered start for the MISA OCM Sector regulatory monitoring, the last 
plant of the twenty-six plants completed its twelve months of monitoring on July 31, 1991. 
The data provided in this report reflects the validated industry supplied effluent monitoring 
database as of November 6, 1991. 

The effluent data was validated and used m calculations on the basis of the following rules: 

• AU analytical results with the following remark codes were excluded from the 
calculations: 

I Interference suspected 

MP Multiphase sample 

SID Sample identification problem 

SIP Sample improperly preserved 

UCR Data unreliable; could not confirm by re-analysis 

!IN No data, insufficient volume 

!NM No effluent, no sample 

> Data values greater than 

N/A No data will be reported-zero values/blank fields only 

• For other remark codes, zero or blank concentration values were omitted. 

• Data with analytical results below the Regulation Method Detection Limit 
(RMDL) were used as reported. 

• For values less than RMDL/ 10 (see Appendix B for list of RMDLs), the value 
of RMDL/10 was substituted. 

• It should be noted that when a parameter level is reported as less than a 
detection limit (i.e. " <DL" remark coded data) the actual concentration in the 
effluent is generally understood to be within the range from zero to the 
detection limit. 



MISA Organic Chemical Manufacturing Sector QA/QC Report 

IV IMPORTANCE OF THE QA/QC ASSESSMENT PROCESS 

To assess the quality of the effluent monitoring data submitted under the Effluent Monitoring 
Regulation, OCM Sector plants were required to submit quality assurance and quality control 
(QA/QC) data. The assessment of the QA/QC data using a formal process provided 
information on the "analytical goodness" of the larger effluent monitoring database. It 
allowed classification of the parameters in the effluent database as to their suitability for use 
in the limits setting process and to confirm the presence/absence of parameters in the 
effluent, intake, once-through cooling water and storm water streams. 

The QA/QC data consisted of field QA/QC data submitted by each plant and internal 
laboratory QA/QC data kept on file at each laboratory that performed sample analysis. 
Table 1 lists the types of field QA/QC samples taken, their significance, and the expected 
results. 

The laboratory QA/QC data consisting of laboratory QA/QC checks (laboratory blanks, 
spiked blanks and replicate analyses), was retained by the laboratories for possible review by 
the Ministry. 

The purpose of the QA/QC data is two-fold: 

• to identify and assess the significance of: 

• biases 

• chronic contamination 

• data variability 

• false results (either positive or negative) 

• field sampling or laboratory analytical problems; and 

• to determine the validity of the effluent monitoring database. 

One of the following conclusions could be drawn from the QA/QC assessment process with 
respect to the effluent monitoring data: 

• The data are acceptable and can be used for limits setting; 

• The data are equivocal (of limited quality) and should be interpreted carefuUy 
before being considered for limits setting; or 

• The data are unsuitable and the given parameters should only be used for limits 
setting if it can be shown that they are generated or used at the plant site and 
their presence in the effluents is probable.

V THE QA/QC ASSESSMENT PROCESS 

BACKGROUND 

The QA/QC assessment process used in evaluating the effluent monitoring data for the OCM 
Sector followed the approach outUned in Ref (1). The approach consisted of three main steps: 

Step 1. The RETRIEVAL AND SCREENING for each plant of all the field QA/QC 

data for the "found parameters" and all the corresponding effluent monitoring 
data for that plant. 

Step 2. The SORTDSTG AND SUMMARIZING of the QA/QC and efïluent monitoring 

data. 

Step 3. The EVALUATION OF TEIE QA/QC DATA and effluent monitoring data. 

"Found" Parameters 

In the evaluation of the QA/QC data, emphasis was placed on those parameters "found" at 
each plant site in either the intake, process, combined, once-through cooling water or storm 
water streams^ In order to determine these "found" parameters, the effluent monitoring 
data were analyzed and parameters defined as "found" according to the following 90/10 rule. 

• In selecting "found" parameters for each plant site in the OCM Sector, a parameter 
was listed as "found" unless the monitoring data showed (at a 95% confidence level) 
that a statistical proportion of 0.9 of the data was at a concentration of less than the 
Regulation Method Detection Limit (RMDL). 

Individual site "found" parameter totals ranged from 5 parameters at Akzo Chemicals Ltd. 
(Samia) to 77 parameters at the Dow Chemical Canada Inc., Samia plant. pH was not 
included in the QA/QC assessment since it will be regulated within the range specified in the 
Effluent Limits Regulation. QA/QC data for specific conductance was not required from the 
plant sites. 

Emphasis was placed on the evaluation of the QA/QC data for "found" parameters since 
these parameters are candidates for effluent limits setting. 



"Found" parameters for the process and combined effluents will be considered for 
effluent limits setting. "Found" parameters identified in either the effluent, intake, 
once -through cooling water and storm water effluents will be assessed for 
presence only. 



MISA Organic Chemical Manufacturing Sector QA/QC Report 

All the parameters listed in Appendix E (Tables El to E26) are the "found" parameters 
identified at each OCM plant site. Any letter in the tables ie. A, E, U, L, or R indicates that 
the parameter was "found" for the specific stream. 

Parameters that were categorized as "not found" using the 90/10 selection rule were also 
investigated. They were evaluated for possible false negative results by examining the 
recovery levels of the travelling spiked blanks to check for under-recoveries and by 
examining the uncorrected and corrected monitoring data for over-corrections. 

METHODOLOGY 

1. RETRIEVAL AND SCREENING 

Appendix C contains the Working QA/QC tables summarizing the effluent monitoring data 
and the accompanying field QA/QC data on a plant-by-plant basis. The information 
presented in these tables represented the first step in the QA/QC assessment. The following 
tables, where feasible, were assembled for each plant: 

• Detection Frequencies and Concentration Ratios for Frequently Monitored 
"Found" Parameters.^ 

• Detection Frequencies and Concentration Ratios for Infrequently Monitored 
"Found" Parameters.^ 

• Detection Frequencies and Concentration Ratios for "Found" Parameters in 
Travelling Blanks 

- to identify any sample contamination from field operations. 

• Absolute Value of the Difference Between Uncorrected Travelling Blank 
Sample Concentration and Corrected Travelling Blank Sample Concentration 
Divided by the Regulation Method Detection Limit for "Found" Parameters 
- to identify any laboratory corrections made to the travelling blank results. 



^ Frequently monitored parameters are those parameters monitored daily, 
thrice-weekly and weekly. 

^ Infrequently monitored pzu-ameters are those parameters monitored monthly, 
quarterly and semi-annually. 



MISA Or ganic Chemical Manufacturing Sector QA/QC Report 

• Range of Recoveries and Ratio of Spiked Quantity to Regulation Method 
Detection Limit for "Found" Parameters 

- to provide a check on method recovery. 

• Absolute Value of the Difference Between Uncorrected Travelling Spiked 
Blank Sample Concentration and Corrected Travelling Spiked Blank Sample 
Concentration Divided by the Regulation Method Detection Limit for "Found" 
Parameters 

- to identify any laboratory corrections made to the travelling spiked blank 

results. 

• Absolute Value of the Difference Between Effluent Monitoring and Duplicate 
Sample Concentration Divided by the Regulation Method Detection Limit for 
"Found" Parameters 

- to assess precision of analysis. 

• Absolute Value of the Difference Between Uncorrected Duplicate Sample 
Concentration and Corrected Duplicate Sample Concentration Divided by the 
Regulation Method Detection Limit for "Found" Parameters 

- to identify any laboratory corrections made to the duplicate results. 

• Absolute Value of the Difference Between Effluent Monitoring and Split 
Sample Concentration Divided by the Regulation Method Detection Limit for 
"Found" Parameters 

- to assess precision of analysis. 

• Absolute Value of the Difference Between Uncorrected Split Sample 
Concentration and Corrected Split Sample Concentration Divided by the 
Regulation Method Detection Limit for "Found" Parameters 

- to identify any laboratory corrections made to the spUt results. 

• Absolute Value of the Difference Between Uncorrected Monitoring Sample 
Concentration and Corrected Monitoring Sample Concentration Divided by the 
Regulation Method Detection Limit for "Found" Parameters 

- to identify any laboratory corrections made to the effluent monitoring results. 

(The difference is known as the laboratory blank. This is normally used to 
correct for labware/reagent contamination.) 

Specific problematical data was individually analyzed and is reported in Appendix D.

2. 



SORTING AND SUMMARIZING 



After summarizing the effluem monitoring data and QA/QC data, the second step in the 
QA/QC assessment process was to classify individual parameters according to their frequency 
of occurrence and their level in each effluent stream. 

Classification of parameters according to their frequency of occurrence dictates the strategy 
which is to be followed for interpreting the QA/QC data. The report of the Issue Resolution 
Committee on QA/QC (1) presents three strategies for use in evaluating QA/QC data. These 
strategies provided guidance for the systematic evaluation of specific QA/QC data: 

Strategy 1: Evaluation of "Frequently Found" Analytes 

Assess the likelihood of over-estimation or under-estimation based on the 
recovery of travelling spiked blanks. Assess the possibility of error in blank 
corrections. Assess precision using field duplicates and, if necessary, assess 
precision using laboratory replicates. 

Strategy 2: Evaluation of "Infrequently Found" Analytes 

Determine the possibility of false negative conclusions based on the possible 
under-recovery of travelling spiked blanks. Determine the possibility of false 
positive conclusions based on possible chronic positive travelling blanks. If 
necessary, determine the possibility of under-correction or over-correction for 
laboratory blanks. 

Strategy 3: Evaluation of "Non-occurrence" Analytes 

Determine the possibility of false negative conclusions based on the possible 
under-recovery of travelling spiked blanks. If necessary, determine the 
possibility of over-correction for laboratory blanks. 

The following three main categories were used for sorting according to the strategies 
identified above: 



Frequent Occurrence 
Infrequent Occurrence 
Non-occurrence 



MISA Organic Chemical Manufacturing Sector QA/QC Report 

The categorical division was only used for the puipose of identifying data in the QA/QC data 
review exercise. 

A sorting criteria of 40% frequency of detection above the (RMDL) was used to distinguish 
each category. Thus, the following classifications were developed: 

FREQUENT OCCURRENCE: More than 40% of the parameter observations are above 
the RMDL. 

INFREQUENT OCCURRENCE: Between 1 % and 40% of the parameter observations are 
above the RMDL. 

NON-OCCURRENCE: Less than 1 % of the parameter observations are above 

the RMDL. 

Within both the Frequent and the Infrequent Occurrence categories it was necessary to 
further classify the parameters according to the levels at which they were observed. Three 
sub-categories were used for this further classification: 

• High Level - Used to describe quantitative data." 

• Medium Level - Used to describe semi-quantitative data.'* 

• Low Level - Used to describe qualitative data."* 

The following criteria for these classifications were then developed: 

Frequent Occurrence: 

HIGH LEVEL: More than 50% of the parameter observations are above 5 times 

the RMDL. 

MEDIUM LEVEL: More than 50% of the parameter observations are above 2 times 

the RMDL. 

LOW LEVEL: More than 40% of the parameter observations are above the 

RMDL. 



'* See Glossary for definition of "quantitative", "semi-quantitative", and "qualitative" 

-9- 



MISA Organic Chemical Manufacturing Sector QA/QC Report 

Infrequent Occurrence: 

HIGH LEVEL: Of those observations greater than 2 times the RMDL, more 

than 50% are higher than 5 times the RMDL. 

MEDIUM LEVEL: Of those observations greater than the RMDL, more than 50% 

are higher than 2 times the RMDL. 

LOW LEVEL: More than 1 % but no more than 40% of the parameter 

observations are above the RMDL. 

The following categorization of data was developed: 

Frequent Occurrence - High Level (FH) 

More than 50% of the observations are greater than 5 times the RMDL. 

Frequent Occurrence - Medium Level (FM) 

More than 50% of the observations are greater than 2 times the RMDL. 

Frequent Occurrence - Low Level (TL) 

More than 40% of the observations are above the RMDL. 

Infrequent Occurrence - High Level OH) 

Between 1 % and 40% of the observations are above the RMDL, and of those 
observations greater than 2 times the RMDL, more than 50% are higher than 5 times 
the RMDL. 

Infrequent Occurrence - Medium Level (IM) 

Between 1 % and 40% of the observations are above the RMDL, and of those 
observations higher than the RMDL, more than 50% are higher than 2 times the 
RMDL. 

Infrequent Occurrence - Low Level (ID 

Between 1 % and 40% of the observations are above the RMDL. 

Non-occurrence (NO) 

Less than 1 % of the observations are above the RMDL.

MISA Organic Chemical Manufacturing Sector QA/QC Report 

DATA CLASSIFICATION METHOD 

In order to classify the effluent monitoring data according to the frequency of occurance 
categories, the twelve month average was calculated for each parameter for the control point 
where QA/QC samples were taken at each plant. The average was then divided by the 
RMDL for the parameter. This value was defined as the parameter "concentration ratio". 
This ratio allowed for the comparison of data for different parameters. A concentration ratio 
of 1.0 or less would indicate that there was little or no significant presence of the parameter 
in the intake or effluent stream(s) since the concentration was equal to or below the RMDL. 

3. EVALUATION OF QA/QC DATA 

"FOUND" PARAMETERS 

The QA/QC data for "found" parameters were evaluated as follows (based on the 
classification of each parameter): 

Frequent Occurrence - High Level 

Accuracy, recovery, and precision were investigated. 

Frequent Occurrence - Medium Level 

Recovery, precision and potential for blank biases were investigated. 

Frequent Occurrence - Low Level 

Potential for false positives (travelling blank detections or high recoveries of travelling 
spiked blanks) and precision were investigated. 

Inftequent Occurrence - High Level 

Process changes and potential for contamination were investigated. 

Infrequent Occurrence - Medium Level 

Recovery and potential for blank biases were investigated. 

Infrequent Occurrence - Low Level 

The potential for false positives (high recoveries) or false negatives (low recoveries of 
travelling spiked blanks or over-corrections for laboratory blanks) was investigated. 

Non-occurrence 

The potential for false negatives (low recoveries of travelling spiked blanks or 
over-corrections for laboratory blanks) was investigated. 



MISA Organic Chemical Manufacturing Sector QA/QC Report 

"NOT FOUND" PARAMETERS 

Uncorrected data and the recovery levels of the travelling spiked blanks for parameters that 
were "not found" using the 90/10 selection criteria were also investigated. 

VI SPECIFIC PARAMETER QA/QC DATA ASSESSMENT 

"FOUND" PARAMETERS 

In order to assess the QA/QC data for the sector, each individual plant site required its own 
QA/QC assessment. 

In the QA/QC assessment process, the following steps were used: 

• In assessing the travelling blank data, average travelling blank concentration 
ratios which were consistently less than 1.0 or much lower than the average 
effluent concentration ratio often indicated that the effluent monitoring data for 
that parameter were satisfactory. If the data did not meet this criteria, 
individual travelling blank results were compared to the effluent monitoring 
data to assess field contamination. 

• In assessing the travelling spiked blank data, a range of recoveries inside 60% 
to 140% were deemed satisfactory. If the data did not meet this criteria, 
individual recoveries were compared to the effluent monitoring data to assess 
potential false negatives or false positives. Recoveries lower than 60% 
increase the risk of a false negative conclusion as to the presence or absence of 
a parameter. Recoveries higher than 140% can only be attributed to either 
data entry errors or field/laboratory contamination. If an over-recovery was 
due to field contamination, the contamination would also be present in the 
blank samples and would be identified through the evaluation of travelling 
blanks. 

• In assessing the duplicate or split sample data, average difference ratios^ that 
were less than 1.0 or much less than the average effluent concentration ratio 
implied that precision was satisfactory. If the data did not meet this criteria, 
then the individual duplicate/ split results were compared to the effluent 
monitoring data to assess analysis variability. 



^ See Glossary for definition of "difference ratio". 

- 12- 



MISA Organic Chemical Manufacturing Sector QA/QC Report 

• In assessing the uncorrected monitoring data, average difference ratios which 
were less than 1.0 or not comparable to the average effluent concentration ratio 
implied that laboratory blank corrections (the difference) were insignificant. If 
the data did not meet this criteria, individual uncorrected results were 
compared to the effluent monitoring data for reliability of corrections. If 
corrections were made to the effluent monitoring samples, then corrections to 
the QA/QC samples were checked for consistency. 

One of the following conclusions was then made about the parameter: 

• Data are acceptable. 

• Data are equivocal. 

• Data are unsuitable. 

During the analysis of the QA/QC data, consideration was also given to the following: 

• "Found" parameters with out of compliance Laboratory Method Detection Limits 
O-MDLs^ 

A parameter may have become a "found" parameter because the laboratory was 
unable to meet the RMDL. Such a parameter may stiU be limited depending on how 
much higher the LMDL (ie. " < DL" remark-coded data) was compared to the RMDL 
or because its generation or use at the plant site and its presence in effluents is 
probable. 

• "Found" parameters with analytical difficulties. 

Some plants diluted their effluent samples before analysis in order to avoid potential 
interference problems or contamination of their laboratory analytical equipment. Due 
to this process, a laboratory may not have been able to meet the RMDL for some 
analytes. As a result, the number reported would be higher than the RMDL with a 
" < " or " < WE" remark code indicating that this process was carried out. The 
parameter may still be considered for effluent limits setting depending on how much 
higher the remark-coded data was compared to the RMDL or if it can be shown that 
the parameter was generated or used at the plant site and its presence in effluents is 
probable. 



13- 



MISA Organic Chemical Manufacturing Sector QA/QC Report 

"NOT FOUND" PARAMETERS 

Under special circumstances, a "not found" parameter may be considered for effluent limits 
if it poses a significant threat to human health and the environment. Any significant 
analyticcd difficulties associated with the "not found" parameters have to be taken into 
consideration to set meaningful limits. 

In assessing the QA/QC data for the "not found" parameters, the following steps were used 
(tables for "not found" parameters are not shown in this report): 

• If the average or maximum recovery was less than 40%, then the individual travelling 
spiked blank results were examined for potential data entry errors. If no errors 
existed, the parameter was deemed to be a probable false negative as its concentration 
was likely to have been under-estimated. 

• If there were corrections for laboratory blanks, then the individual uncorrected 
monitoring results were compared to the effluent monitoring results to assess 
labware/reagent contamination. If the corrections were significant enough to 
categorize the parameter as "not found", the parameter was deemed to be a potential 
false negative. 



MISA Organic Chemical Manufacturing Sector QA/QC Report 

VII RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS 

The complete results of the QA/QC assessment are shown in Appendix E where for each 
plant site each "found" contaminant is listed and is designated with one of the following 
codes: 

A Data are Acceptable. 

E Data are Equivocal. 

U Data are Unsuitable. 

L Found on basis of LMDL greater than the RMDL. 

R Analytical difficulties were encountered. 

E/R Combination of E and R. 

The background data leading to the classification is shown in .^)pendices C and D. 

Courtaulds, Du Pont (Kingston), Du Pont (Maitland), Ethyl and Polysar had analytical 
difficulties with parameters in ATGs 16-23 (identified by " < " or " < WE" remark-coded 
data). The specific parameters are labelled with an "R" in the tables found in Appendix E. 

Specific problem parameters from Appendix E have been grouped in tables as follows: 

•Table 2 lists by plant the parameters requiring discretion for use in the development of 
effluent limits. 

•Table 3 lists by plant site all parameters where the laboratory LMDL was higher than the 
RMDL. 

•Table 4 lists "Not found" parameters with labware/reagent contamination. 

•Table 5 lists "Not found" parameters with under-recoveries of travelling spiked blanks. 

CONCLUSIONS 

The formal QA/QC data assessment process has confirmed that the virtually all of the 
effluent monitoring data for the MISA OCM Sector are acceptable for use in the development 
of effluent limits. 

The assessment has also identified "found" parameters which wUl require further specific 
attention before being considered for limits. These parameters included those with non- 
QA/QC related problems such as categorization as "found" based on a laboratory failing to 
meet the RMDL or because of analytical difficulties as represented by " < WE" or " < " 
remark-coded data.

1) 0.93 Mg/L 1 4,440 ^g/L 2 

2) 9,400- /ig/L 1 17,360 Mg/L 2 

2 pairs (with better agreement) were analyzed by different laboratories. 

Corrections: 13 uncorrected duplicate samples, average difference = 263RMDL. Possible 

entry error for one sample (corrected duplicate = 4,440 /^g/L, uncorrected duplicate = 0.7 

Ixg/L). All other difference ratios are = 0. 

Conclusion: Precision is acceptable. 

Monitoring Lab Corrections: 156 uncorrected samples, average difference = 169RMDL, 

maximum difference = 15,385RMDL. Largest correction is possibly an data entry error 

(corrected sample = 22,160 fig/L, uncorrected sample = 2,160 /xg/L). Some other large 

difference ratios are due to multiple sample entries from Lab 1 and Lab 2 on the same day. 

Other large corrections exist but are negligible compared to the level of monitoring 

concentrations. 

Conclusion: Lab corrections are acceptable. 

Conclusion: Data is acceptable. Poor agreement between samples analyzed by Lab 1 and 
Lab 2 should be investigated.
