New paper from LIFE APEX - Making use of apex predator sample collections

A paper entitled 'Making use of apex predator sample collections: an integrated workflow for quality assured sample processing, analysis and digital sample freezing of archived samples' has been published in Chemosphere. The paper is an output of the EU funded LIFE APEX project https://lifeapex.eu/.

The paper highlights:

• Identifying regulatory needs for using predator monitoring data in risk assessment.

• Assessing the status quo of quality assurance measures in European sample collections.

• Workflow for quality assured sampling, processing, and analysis of archived samples.

• Focus on comprehensive chemical analysis such as non-target and suspect screening.

• Digital sample freezing of high-resolution chromatograms in databases.
