Biomedical projects of this Superfund Program focus on the adverse health effects of arsenic on the health of adults, adolescents and the mechanisms whereby arsenic produces these adverse effects. Naturally occurring arsenic in groundwater used for drinking and cooking is a problem in many regions of the world and in many households in the United States that rely on their own well water. The Trace Metals Core Laboratory enables the above-mentioned research projects to achieve their objectives by providing a cost-effect central laboratory site that can accurately measure arsenic, arsenic metabolites, and other toxic metals in biological samples derived from the three biomedical research projects. This laboratory participates in numerous quality control programs, national and international, and thus the values obtained for the analysis of blood and urine samples are assured to be accurate.
