Project Summary (1995-2000)

The objective of this project is to develop rapid immunochemical methods for the analysis of hazardous materials and their metabolites in the laboratory and field. Assays developed under previous funding are being made available to biomedical researchers as well as to scientists involved in ecological, epidemiological, and engineering aspects of the research. New targets are proposed based on perceived needs of other Superfund investigators. A major goal is to target those compounds for which immunoassays will be most useful in both research and cleanup. Of lower priority is the advancement of the theory and practice of immunochemical analysis in general as well as an attempt to apply techniques of immunoassay in a collaborative fashion towards development of assays indicative of effects of hazardous chemicals as well as exposure.
