Analytical Methods Development for 65 Ecologically Relevant Pharmaceuticals and Metabolites
Develop the analytical methods to detect 65 ecologically relevant pharmaceuticals and metabolites in water, sediment, and tissue for use in assessing laboratory and environmental exposures.
Evaluate sample volumes, sample preservation options, and extraction techniques for LC/MS/MS analyses in order to achieve the detection limits necessary to measure environmentally relevant or informatically predicted levels of the 65 pharmaceuticals in water, sediment, and tissues.
Manuscript on LC/MS/MS and water extraction methods by the end of FY07. Manuscript on LC/MS/MS and sediment and tissue extraction methods by the end of FY08. FY10 Report on chemical methods developed for ecologically relevant pharmaceuticals.
