Semivolatile organic compounds (SVOCs) are ubiquitous contaminants in indoor environments, emanating from different sources and partitioning among several compartments, including the gas phase, airborne particles, and settled dust. Nevertheless, simultaneous measurements in the three compartments are rarely reported. In this study, we investigated indoor(More)
The compounding of total parenteral nutrition solutions (TPN) in the hospital pharmacy is a high-risk activity for which a quality assurance programme is necessary. The complexity of parenteral nutrition solutions containing almost 50 ingredients makes it difficult to measure each of them. On the other hand, the assay of electrolytes such as sodium and(More)

BACKGROUND The amount of lead in the environment has decreased significantly in recent years, and so did exposure. However, there is no known safe exposure level and, therefore, the exposure of children to lead, although low, remains a major public health issue. With the lower levels of exposure, it is becoming more difficult to identify lead sources and(More)
In soil, the way biotic parameters impact the relationship between bacterial diversity and function is still unknown. To understand these interactions better, we used RNA-based stable-isotope probing to study the diversity of active atrazine-degrading bacteria in relation to atrazine degradation and to explore the impact of earthworm-soil engineering with(More)
