There is growing concern about environmental and human exposure to pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs). PPCPs can be a variety of chemicals, ranging from antibiotics to hormones to pesticides. One common need is for high-quality isotopically labeled standards to improve analysis of PPCPs in difficult matrices such as sewage sludge and wastewater. CIL, with guidance from leading laboratories worldwide, continues to produce representative standards for the analysis of PPCPs. View full article here.

Drugs used to treat various medical conditions, insect repellents, and sunscreen all have one thing in common: they serve as unique markers for the human footprint. When these items are used, some wind up in watersheds, water tables, soil and other downstream areas; often they can be concentrated and add to the total exposure profile of the target community. Analyzing samples for pharmaceutical and personal care products helps to identify environmental contaminants that do not originate in the traditional industrial, agricultural or commercial settings.
