Environmental Studies Using the Tecan QC Kit and an Automated Liquid Handling System
George Rodrigues, Emily Avis, Alf Price, Verena Gerber

The study illustrates the effect of two environmental factors (air temperature and humidity) on the volumetric performance of a Tecan Freedom EVO ® pipetting robot, equipped with a liquid LiHa (Liquid Handling Arm). Tecan recommends that the EVO be installed in a controlled environment. However, some users choose to operate in less controlled conditions.

A pico-liter semi-automated screening method for morphological identification of microorganisms from environmental samples
Ms. Charmi Chande, Dr. Ravindra Phadke

An economically feasible microfabrication protocol was developed for fabricating micro features used for bacterial analysis from environmental samples like soil and green sulfur bacteria sample. Organisms were classified in 11 morphotypes by using open source Image analysis software named CMEIAS and the standardized protocol was confirmed by viable count and pure culture study

Busted! First Detection of Steroid Hormones in Pacific Walrus Bones
Charapata P, Horstmann L, and Misarti N

The Pacific walrus (Odobenus rosmarus divergens) is a candidate species for the Endangered Species List because Arctic sea ice has declined significantly in the past decades. This project focuses on validating a method for extracting steroid hormones from archaeological, historical, and modern bone creating a baseline of hormone levels during different climate regimes.

METHOD DEVELOPMENT FOR THE SIMULTANEOUS DETERMINATION OF METHYLMERCURY AND INORGANIC MERCURY IN SEAFOOD
Sergio Carneado, Ariane V. Zmozinski, Carmen Ibáñez-Palomino, Àngels Sahuquillo, José Fermín López-Sánchez, Márcia M. da Silva

This work reports the method development for the simultaneous determination of methylmercury (MeHg+) and inorganic mercury (iHg) species in seafood. The study focused on the extraction and quantification of MeHg+ by liquid chromatography coupled to on-line UV irradiation and cold vapour atomic fluorescence spectroscopy (LC-UV-HG-AFS), using HCl 4 mol L-1 as extractant agent.

Relationships between Water Quality Constituents in the Delta and the Influence of Different Sources of Water
Richard A. Denton and Paul Hutton

Analysis of detailed grab sample data from San Francisco Bay and Delta and development of regression relationships between EC, TDS and water quality constituents such as chloride, bromide, sodium, calcium, sulfate, alkalinity and hardness. The relationships in the interior Delta vary depending upon the percentage contributions from seawater, agricultural drainage and freshwater inflows.

Microextraction techniques combined with X-ray fluorescence spectrometry for determination of different metal ions in water
Karina Kocot (a), Beata Zawisza (a), Eva Marguí (b), Ignasi Queralt (c), Rafal Sitko (a)

In present work new preconcentration procedures combining microextraction techniques and X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy were developed. Proposed methodologies are promising tools for multielemental analysis enabling detection of natural pollutants in different water samples.

APPLICATION OF LIQUID CHROMATOGRAPHY WITH UV DETECTION FOR DETERMINATION OF PLANT GROWTH REGULATOR IN COMMON PLANT FERTILIZERS
Borowczyk K., Wyszczelska-Rokiel M., Stachniuk J., Chwatko G., Glowacki R.

1. The methodology allows facile and accurate determination of IBA in common plant fertilizer samples.
2. The analytical figures of linearity, precision and recovery shown during the method validation procedure are well within the criteria for biological sample analysis.
3. In temperature -18, 4 and 25 °C the analyte stays stable for 6 h.
4. The assay should help in control of phytohormones concentration in plants and fertilizers.
