The National Exposure Research Laboratory′s (NERL′s) Human Exposure and Atmospheric Sciences Division (HEASD) conducts research in support of EPA′s mission to protect human health and the environment. HEASD′s research program supports Goal 1 (Clean Air) and Goal 4 (Healthy People) of EPA′s strategic plan. More specifically, our division conducts research to characterize the movement of pollutants from the source to contact with humans. Our multidisciplinary research program produces Methods, Measurements, and Models to identify relationships between and characterize processes that link source emissions, environmental concentrations, human exposures, and target-tissue dose. The impact of these tools is improved regulatory programs and policies for EPA.
Development of a multianalyte enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for detection of permethrin and aroclors 1248 or 1254, and implementation of the assay for analysis of soil/sediment samples are described. The feasibility of using the multianalyte ELISA to monitor aroclors 1254 and permethrin simultaneously was tested with permethrin and aroclor standards, and with aroclor- and permethrin-containing soil/sediment and house dust samples. Comparison of the I50 and I20 values of the multianalyte with those of a single-analyte assay revealed similar results, and multianalyte ELISA determination of analyte amounts in soil/sediment dust samples yielded similar results to those of a single-analyte assay. A single-analyte assay of permethrin content in permethrin-containing dust samples showed that the ELISA can determine the analyte accurately in samples with dust matrix contents ranging from 6.25 to 100 mg as indicated by the good correlation between the results of the immunoassay and those of the gas chromatography analysis.
