Supported by NOAA’s Center of Excellence for Great Lakes & Human Health and the Cooperative Institute for Limnology & Ecosystems Research, scientists at the University of South Florida are validating and deploying, an operational sensor comprised of a robotic sampler (Fries patent #7,927,807) coupled with an in-water mass spectrometer (Fries patent #6,727,498).  The sampler (essentially, a robotic ‘technician in a can’) automates sample collection and extraction/purification of ‘target’ chemical/biochemical agents (pesticides, toxins, pollutants, biomarkers), prior to a ‘gold standard” confirmation/quantification by mass spectrometry, based on ion trap technology.
