WP3: Training course on laboratory practice for Priority Substances analysis – on samples from different matrixes (water, sediment and biota). Updated knowledge on sampling, treatment and analysis for the new priority substances.
3.1. Sample treatment of biota samples (mainly fish) and water samples
The general topic of concern is to establish an optimal preparation scheme that includes the extraction and cleaning procedures of the crude extracts to selective separation of the main analytes from the various biota samples (liver, muscle tissue) and the removal of the major interferences in case of organic micropollutants analysis (proteins, fats etc). A specific topic would be sample treatment technique for biota samples.
3.2. Analytical technique for Bifenox, Cybutryne, Cypermetrhin, 17-alpha-ethinyl-estradiol, 17-beta-estradiol, Terbutryn, Diclofenac, Quinoxyfen.
