The development of a comprehensive analytical program in ultratrace analyses of toxic substances requires a facility specifically devoted to synthesis activities and for making analytical standards. The development of adequate operational procedures for such a facility is described. Environmental monitoring is a key activity in protecting the laboratory worker and the analytical integrity of ongoing studies. A wipe test procedure is described that provides the information needed to pinpoint sources of contamination. Examples of operational problems and remedial actions are described for the development of a parts per trillion dioxin analytical method.
