Analytical Capabilities, Sample Requirements, and Instrumentation

OGRL works independently or collaboratively to pair fate and transport with biologicalexperiments and effects. OGRL has three main focuses: 1. Development and modification of robust analytical methods needed for analysis ofcompounds in multiple matrices to address relevant environmental health issues. 2. Conduct independent and collaborative lab to national based studies to provide newknowledge on...

OGRL Algal Toxins Methods of Analysis

Algal toxins are a group of toxic compounds produced by a range of photosynthetic freshwater and marine plankton. These toxins have the ability to cause sickness in animals and humans and in severe cases lead to death. OGRL has the ability to evaluate and conduct occurrence, fate, transport, effects, and treatability studies methods.

Measuring POEA, a Surfactant Mixture in Herbicide Formulations

POEA (polyoxyethylene tallow amine) is a surfactant with known toxic effects on aquatic organisms. POEA was added to the original formulation of the herbicide glyphosate to aid in its application and effectiveness at controlling weeds. U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientists developing methods to measure POEA in the environment have shown that it’s a complex and variable mixture of related...
