Sewage Analysis CORe group Europe

Sewage Analysis CORe group Europe (SCORE)

SCORE will develop and expand an existing pan-European inter-disciplinary network, bringing together experts from relevant disciplines interested in the application and development of using the quantitative measurement of human biomarkers in sewage to evaluate lifestyle, health and exposure at the community level.

review: Mass spectrometric strategies for the investigation of biomarkers of illicit drug use in wastewater

On-line

Felix Hernandez, Sara Castiglioni, Adrian Covaci, Pim de Voogt, Erik Emke, Barbara Kasprzyk-Hordern, Christoph Ort, Malcolm Reid, Juan V. Sancho, Kevin V. Thomas, Alexander L.N. van Nuijs, Ettore Zuccato and Lubertus Bijlsma.

The article focuses on the potential of high-resolution mass spectrometry. Different approaches for target and non-target analysis are discussed, and the interest to perform experiments under laboratorycontrolled conditions, as a complementary tool to investigate related compounds (e.g., minor metabolites and/or transformation products in wastewater) is treated. The article ends  up with the trends and future perspectives in this field from the authors’ point of view. Link
