PERSISTENT ORGANIC POLLUTANT RESEARCH LAB

The persistent organic and inorganic pollutants significantly increased in the coastal and marine environment due to extensive industrial/domestic establishment. The POPs lab is specialized in analysis of all classes of organic residues in environmental matrices (water, sediment and biota). This facility supports in the systematic assessments of the environmental contaminants to minimize environmental health risks.

Analytical Capabilities:

Pesticide residue analysis includes:

  • Individual or Multi- residues of pesticides
  • Drugs and Pharmaceuticals
  • Personal care products
  • Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon (PAH)
  • Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon (TPH)
  • Plastic compounds

THEMATIC AREAS

  • Ecological health risk assessment
  • Fate and transport of toxic substances
  • Coastal Pollution management
  • Bioaccumulation / Bio-magnification Factors
  • Trophic Transfer Factors
