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, PART PER BILLION LEVELS. THESE ASSAY SYSTEMS, BASED ON ENZYME CYCLING TECHNIQUES, WILL THEN BE INCORPORATED INTO AN IMMUNOLOGICAL ASSAY FORMAT. THE MODEL SYSTEM SELECTED FORTHIS STUDY IS P-DICHLORBENZENE. THIS COMPOUND IS FREQUENTLY ENCOUNTERED IN DRINKING WATER SUPPLIES FOLLOWING CHLORINATION PROCESSES. IT IS ALSO FOUND IN GROUND WATER SUPPLIES WHICH ARE RELIED UPON BY A MAJORITY OF THE POPULATION IN THE UNITED STATES FOR DRINKING WATER. DURING PHASE II OF THIS PROJECT, ALL COMPONENTS WILL BE IMMOBILIZEDINTO A DRY FILM FORMAT SUITABLE FOR USE BY NON-LABORATORY TRAINED PERSONNEL IN NON-LABORATORY SETTINGS.
