Development of a Paper-Based Fluidic Device for Phosphorus Detection
Patricia K. Rusch and Kyle A. Cissell

This poster displays the successful beginning stages of an innovative way to detect phosphorus in standing bodies of water by minimizing the quantity of chemicals used, reducing the cost of analysis instrumentation, allowing the potential for real-time monitoring, and producing consistent and reliable results.

Study Of The Active Bacterial Community In Two Membrane Bioreactors
Moreno-Mesonero, L.1, Moreno, Y.1*, Morillo, J.A., Muñagorri, F.2 and Alonso, J.L.1

In this work, bacterial communities from two MBR systems treating leachates were evaluated using the 16S rRNA metagenomics approach, with and without a viability dye (Propidium Monoazide, PMA).

Rapid Biosensor-Based Detection of Environmental Contamination by Petroleum Hydrocarbons, PAHs and Heavy Metals
Nigel J Silman*, Jeremy G Thomas & Peter Riggs

In this study, we evaluated different freeze-drying excipients to stabilise the biosensor and remove the requirement to store bacteria at -20??C.

Prospecting For Iron and Titanium Using Termitaria
Kinachu James. G, Kiptoo Jackson. K, Onditi Anam.O.

This study demonstrated elevated levels of the two metals (that is iron and titanium) in termitaria soil compared to the surrounding soils. Termitaria are very important bioturbators and can therefore be used as preliminary step in mineral prospecting since they provide an indication of the potential of the positive anomaly, and enables a judgment on the scale of the metal accumulation

A Microfluidic Device for Detection of Water Contamination from Hydraulic Fracturing
Leslie J. Loh, Gayan C. Bandara, Christopher A. Heist and Vincent T. Remcho

A paper-based microfluidic device was designed and optimized for the colorimetric detection of bromide in water. This work was developed in response to the waste management challenges and pollution risks of hydraulic fracturing wastewater. This device is suitable for distribution as a field test as it is portable, easy to use, inexpensive and can be packaged to extend shelf life.

Aptamer-Based Electrochemical Biosensing Platform for Detection of Hormonal Pollutants in Water
Contreras Jimenez, G.; Eissa, S.; Ng, A.; Zourob, M.; Siaj, M.

A novel detection mechanism based on aptamers has been developed to detect small molecules as hormones, antibiotics, toxins, drugs, etc. For first time, an aptasensor to detect progesterone has been developed.

Field Performance of a New Technology with the Potential to Identify Allergy and Asthma Triggers
Julian Gordon, PhD, Prasanthi Gandhi, MBA, MPH1, Jack A.Gilbert, Jarrad T. Hampton-Marcell

This work introduces a very simple plug-and-play device that can sample air at a high volume flow rate with no moving parts. Aerosol particles are captured on electrodes and eluted for testing. We show that performance of the device is substantially equivalent to capture by pumping through a filter for immunological and molecular analysis.

Bedside Ebola Diagnostic
A new test can accurately diagnose Ebola virus disease within minutes, providing clinicians with crucial information for treating patients and containing outbreaks.
The Deep Carbon Cycle
Over billions of years, the total carbon content of the outer part of the Earth—in its upper mantle, crust, oceans and atmospheres—has gradually increased, scientists report.
Profiling DNA Viruses in Arctic Lakes
The Arctic's freshwater lakes contain viral communities composed of DNA viruses from lineages that are largely distinct from those described elsewhere, a new study suggests.
Unravelling the Mysteries of Carbonic Acid
Researchers have shown how gaseous carbon dioxide molecules are solvated by water to initiate the proton transfer chemistry that produces carbonic acid and bicarbonate.
Algal Blooms Pose Health Risks Downstream
A new study has found that toxic algal blooms in reservoirs on the Klamath River can create unsafe water conditions far downstream on lower parts of the river in northern California.
The Perfect Partnership: Research & Industry; Software & Instrumentation. It really starts to come together at ASMS 2015
Collaboration and knowledge-sharing were evident everywhere: on the bus, in the hallways and in the bars. This article aims to capture this theme and share with you some of the fruits of this coming together of science and industry.
Fracking Hasn't Caused Widespread Harm to Water
Assessment shows hydraulic fracturing activities have not led to widespread, systemic impacts to drinking water resources and identifies important vulnerabilities to drinking water resources.
How Climate Influenced Fresh Water during Last Ice Age
A new study shows how huge influxes of fresh water from icebergs during the last ice age had an unexpected effect; they increased the production of methane in the tropical wetlands.
Anti-Pollution Rules Have Uncertain Effects
New research suggests that estimates of the impacts of anti- pollution rules are much more uncertain than they are often portrayed.
