  Demonstration and Quality Assurance Project Plan: Technologies for the Monitoring and Measurement of Dioxin and Dioxin-like Compounds in Soil and Sediment
April 2004

A demonstration of technologies for determining the presence of dioxin and dioxin-like compounds in soil and sediment will be conducted under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation Program in Saginaw, Michigan, at Green Point Environmental Learning Center from April 26 to May 5, 2004. The primary purpose of the demonstration is to evaluate innovative monitoring and measurement technologies. The technologies listed below will be demonstrated.

  • AhRC PCR™ Kit, Hybrizyme Corporation
  • Ah-IMMUNOASSAY ® Kit, Paracelsian, Inc.
  • Coplanar PCB Immunoassay Kit, Abraxis LLC
  • DF-1 Dioxin/Furan Immunoassay Kit, CAPE Technologies L.L.C.
  • CALUX ® by Xenobiotic Detection Systems, Inc.
  • Dioxin ELISA Kit, Wako Pure Chemical Industries, Ltd.

This demonstration plan describes the procedures that will be used to verify the performance and cost of these technologies. The plan incorporates the quality assurance and quality control elements needed to generate data of sufficient quality to document each technology’s performance and cost. A separate innovative technology verification report (ITVR) will be prepared for each technology. The ITVRs will present the demonstration findings associated with the demonstration objectives.
