Trends and advancements in the sampling and preservation of samples for the identification of contaminants of emerging concern
NORMAN (Network of reference laboratories, research centres and related organisations for monitoring of emerging environmental substances) will discuss the challenges and pit-falls of working with emerging contaminants in a workshop hosted by NIVA.
Sted: CIENS Forum, Gaustadalléen 21, 0349 Oslo, Norway
Når: 02.03.2016 - 03.03.2016 ,12:00 - 14:00
The NORMAN network is an independent and competent platform in the field of emerging substances. NORMAN facilitates the exchange of information, debate and research collaborations at a global level with official recognition from institutional agencies of the EU.
The workshop on the “Trends and advancements in the sampling and preservation of samples for the identification of contaminants of emerging concern” will discuss the challenges and pit-falls of working with emerging contaminants. The workshop will tackle three specific themes:
• How do we effectively sample for emerging compounds?
• How do we conveniently store samples for future emerging compounds?
• What are the future trends for the sampling analysis of emerging compounds?
The main objectives of the workshop are to discuss and evaluate the effectiveness of the approaches currently in place for sampling, banking and preservation of samples for emerging contaminant identification, and to develop a framework for identifying the next generation of emerging compounds.
