WATER SAMPLE STABILIZATION

Definition

Sample stabilization procedures may have important consequences for analytical procedures. Samples are often acidified to stabilize the total concentrations of certain constituents, but this acidification also tends to dissolve solids within the sample. Sample stabilization is part of an analytical procedure and not the sampling process.
