The University awarded a contract for laboratory measurements.
Laboratory measurements PCBs, BFRs, and OC pesticides: Measurement of OC pesticides (hexachlorobenzene, beta-hexachlorocyclohexane, gamma-hexachlorocyclohexane, oxychlordane, trans- nonachlor, p,p'DDE, o,p'DDE, p,p'DDT, and mirex), BFRs and PCBs will be performed by Dr. Andreas Sjodin's laboratory at CDC. For these measurements, samples will be extracted by an automated liquid-liquid extraction procedure. Co-extracted material will be removed on an automated solid phase extraction (SPE) system using a two-layer cleanup cartridge containing silica and acid silica127. Quantification will be made by gas chromatography isotope dilution high-resolution mass spectrometry (GC/ID-HRMS). These measurements can be done on plasma samples that have been previously thawed and refrozen as long as the re-freezing has not occurred more than a few times.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for performing sponsored research and other sponsored activities under grants and contracts funded by the sponsor or by sources other than State appropriations. (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b)(8)) We could not obtain this panel of measurements at this price and with this level of expertise anywhere ealse. This work is an essential component of Dr. Persky?s NIEHS-funded R01.
