The cross-contamination of samples and the loss of the analyte can be reduced by rinsing the container with clean water or solvent which is then processed with the sample, or by extracting the sample in the container. 4 Sample Contamination During Analysis The environment in which samples are collected and processed during an oceanographic cruise would be considered unacceptable by any non-oceanographic microanalysis laboratory. On even the best-planned oceanographic vessels the space in which the samples are taken, the winch room and the wet lab, are normally awash in seawater, with a thin film of oil over most of the exposed surfaces.

Most of the changes taking place in stored seawater are due to biological, and principally bacterial, reactions. In one sense, it might seem strange that removing a sample of water from the ocean complete with its normal bacterial complement should result in any increase in bacterial activity. However, the factor controlling bacterial activity seems to be the available surface area, since free flowing bacteria are not usually growing actively [48, 49]. Thus, enclosing a sample of seawater in a bottle serves to furnish the free-floating bacteria with a large surface to which they can cling and upon which they can multiply.
