Superfund Research Program
Trace Elements Analysis Core
The Trace Element Analysis (TEA) Core provides trace metals analysis and expertise to assess metals in drinking water, food (Karagas et al 2016; Taylor and Jackson 2016), and human biomarkers (Rand et al 2016; Punshon et al 2016, Everson et al 2016). The Core participates in international quality control programs to assure data quality and strives to provide high quality, high sensitivity metals analysis. The Core personnel also communicate with community members to provide and translate information on the levels of contaminant metals in waters and food. The Core also functions as a specialized analytical facility to the greater NIH community.
