Abstract
IT IS THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT TO CONDUCT FEASIBILITY RESEARCH ON HIGHLY SENSITIVE DETECTION SYSTEMS SUITABLE FOR FIELD MONITORING OF COMPONENTS FOUND IN WATER IN THE LOW, BER BILLION LEVELES. THESE ASSAY SYSTEMS, BASED ON ENZYME CYCLING TECHNIQUES, WILL THEN BE INCORPORATED INTO AN IMMUNOLOGICAL ASSAY FORMAT. THE MODEL SYSTEM SELECTED FOR THIS STUDY IS GEOSMIN. THIS COMPOUND IS FREQUENTLY ENCOUNTERED INPONDS AND LAKES AT THE PPB LEVEL, AND IS LARGELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE OFF-FLAVORS FOUND IN POND REAREDFISH. IN PHASE II OF THIS PROJECT, ALL COMPONETS WILL BE IMMOBILIZED INTO A DRY FILM FORMAT SUITABLE FOR USE BY NON-LABORATORY TRAINED PERSONNEL IN NON-LABORATORY SETTINGS.
