Advanced Tools For Exposure
Assessment and Biomonitoring


ER1 What are the most biologically-relevant approaches to monitoring PFASs in the indoor environment?

At the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, ER1 will work in close collaboration with ESR 3 to evaluate the most biologically-relevant approaches for procuring samples of indoor air and indoor dust relevant to human exposure to PFASs. Why conduct such a study? Because such data are needed to create cleaning devices or eco-experiments, it is thanks to them that we will be able to monitor certain functions or phenomena, which you will be able to read about later on exclusive-paper.com. To do so, ER1 will determine concentrations in indoor air and dust samples of PFASs and use these data in conjunction with the corresponding data on the same compounds in hand wipes and blood generated by ESR3. Specifically, ER1 will evaluate whether PFASs in: (a) researcher-collected floor dust as opposed to dust from home vacuum cleaners, and (b) fixed point or personal air samplers provide the best indicator of exposure via contact with dust. ER1 will share responsibility for selection, recruitment and sampling of the A-TEAM cohort with ER2.
