INTEGRATING BIOANALYTICAL CAPABILITY IN AN ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYTICAL LABORATORY
VAN EMON, J. M., J. C. CHUANG, R. M. TREJO, AND J. DURNFORD. INTEGRATING BIOANALYTICAL CAPABILITY IN AN ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYTICAL LABORATORY. Chapter 1, Immunoassays and other Bioanalytical Techniques. CRC Press - Taylor & Francis Group, LLC, Boca Raton, FL, , 1-44, (2006).
The overall goal of this research program is to identify those chemicals, pathways, and activities that represent the highest potential exposures to children and to determine the factors that influence these exposures. The following objectives will address this goal:
Revise and refine the existing research plan for children's exposure measurements research.
Collect measurement data on children's exposures.
Provide analytical support to children's pesticide exposure research.
Develop analytical methods for pesticides in duplicate diet food samples.
Develop and apply analytical methods for other chemicals including but not limited to brominated diphenyl ethers, phthalates, perfluorinated chemicals.
Evaluate the impact of chiral chemistry on the risk to children and exposure assessment.
Provide support to the National Children's Study.
Perform data analyses to fill critical data gaps.
Conduct analyses of dietary samples and refine the dietary model for the dietary exposure algorithm.
The product is a book chapter which is an introductory and summary chapter for the reference work "Immunoassays and Other Bianalytical Techniques" to be published by CRC Press, Taylor and Francis Books. The chapter provides analytical chemists information on new techniques and gives examples on how to integrate bioanalytical methods in to an environmental analytical laboratory.
