Dr. Hornbuckle Presents NIEHS Webinar
On June 12, 2017 Dr. Keri Hornbuckle presented as part of the NIEHS Superfund Research Program (SRP) Risk e-Learning webinar series Analytical Tools and Methods-Fate and Transport of Contaminants. She discussed advances in the measurement of PCBs in complex environmental matrices. Her laboratory has developed methods for reproducible, accurate, and precise measurements of all 209 PCB congeners at sub-ppb levels in indoor and ambient air, water, soils, sediments, pore waters, plant tissues, and human blood serum.
Dr. Hornbuckle also discussed methods for sampling, pressurized solid extraction, automated concentration and purification, detection using triple quadrupole mass spectrometry, and quality control and assurance methods that deliver whole method quantification limits less than 1 ng of total PCBs /sample.
There were over 450 participants on the webinar.
