Abstract: A method was developed for the detection of nanoparticles and their state of agglomeration by combining hydrodynamic chromatography (HDC) with single particle inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (spICP-MS). Gold nanoparticles were measured under different conditions including the simulation of one of the most important human body functions, the human digestion.

Abstract: Human biomonitoring studies to determine total titanium (total-Ti) and titanium dioxide (TiO2) particles require very sensitive inductively coupled plasma high resolution mass spectrometry (ICP-HRMS) methods. The result of such studies can only be reliably when used in a risk assessment if the analytical methods are fully validated, as reported here for human liver and spleen.

Abstract: The surface and core sediments obtained from the Yangtze River-south coast estuarine region, and analysed by GC/MS after sample preparation, exhibit a range of organic pollutants over depths from the surface to 0.5 m. The target organic compounds identified are in following categories, homologous series of hydrocarbons, polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and linear alkylbenzenes (LABs).

Abstract: PCR (polymerase chain reaction) is a popular analytical method in genetics of organisms. By using gene-specific primers, a small single region in the huge genomic DNA is selectively amplified by PCR. Thus, PCR is quite frequently used for determination of gene alleles and to identify nucleotide sequences of genes. For these variety of analytical purposes, PCR method is often combined with the other DNA-related methods such as sequence-dependent DNA digestion with restriction enzymes, bisulfite reaction of genomic DNA for estimation of cytosine methylation, and usage of adaptor DNA for advanced analyses.
