App Note 322: Cell-based assay detects residual nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in effluent of municipal wastewater treatment

It presents a roGFP-based method assesses cellular COX activity and hence, reports on the presence of NSAIDs (pain killers, anti-inflammatory drugs). The group tests wastewater for residual drugs for environmental risk-assessment.

What does the AppNote show?

·        roGFP measured with LVF!

·        Cell-based sensor to detect cyclo-oxygenase (COX) inhibition

·        Dual excitation measurements with monochromator

·        NSAID in wastewater was normalized to Diclofenac

·        Use of injectors

For which customer is it important?

·        Novel field: environment and risk assessment laboratory

·        roGFP community (apparently, roGFP is best measured on CLARIOs and PHERAstars)
