Due to the VMSs ubiquity, analysts in the laboratory did not use personal care products and switched gloves whenever handling different samples. Glassware was subject to a special cleaning and decontamination procedure by pre-rinsing with acetone and distilled water. Non-calibrated material proceeded to further heating at 400 °C, for at least 1 h, in a laboratory muffle furnace. Procedural blanks (extraction of distilled water spiked with internal standard) were analyzed with every extraction batch, to correct sample concentration and identify any background contamination.
