Acetaldehyde is an unstable compound post-collection and will both form and degrade under certain sample handling conditions. Even when extreme precautions are taken to maintain the integrity of Acetaldehyde during sample collection, transport and analysis, the results will be affected under typical collection and laboratory procedures.
