Core Services:

The EABES-FC provides support for environmental health scientists in four core areas:

  • Expert consultation regarding sampling plans and measurements of exposure to chemical agents (e.g., volatile organic compounds, metals, particulate matter)
  • Provide full-service exposure assessment capability including collection of exposure data, chemical analysis of environmental and biological samples for chemical agents, data management and interpretation of exposure data;
  • Facilitate access to state-of-the-art instrumentation, including GPS-enabled mobile and personal exposure monitors, for measuring exposure and exposure signatures in biological samples;
  • Develop and implement sensitive and specific quantitative mass spectrometry-based assays for application to environmental samples and biomarkers of exposure.
