Abstract

Enzyme immunoassay kits are now available for qualitative field-testing or for laboratory screening and semiquantitative analysis of pesticides, herbicides, PCBs, mononuclear and polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons, pentachlorophenol, nitroorganics, and many other compounds in aqueous and soil samples. Certain analytes may be quantitatively determined as well, with a degree of accuracy comparable to gas chromatography or high-performance liquid chromatography determination. The method is rapid and inexpensive.
