Abstract

This project will develop standard operating procedures for the collection, storage, preservation, extraction, and concentration of aqueous samples for subsequent CEC screening using in vitro bioanalytical tools (IVBs). This project is part of a larger initiative with WRF’s partners (Southern California Coastal Water Research Project and the California State Water Resource Control Board) to facilitate the implementation of bioanalytical tools among water quality managers. The goal of this project is to offer robust sample processing procedures applicable for various IVBs and water matrices.

Originally funded as WERF project Reuse-14-15.
