Webinar: Effect-based methods in cells

Welcome to our webinar on the 21st of March at 09:00-10:00 (CET +1). 

There is an increasing concern regarding the presence of micropollutants in wastewater effluents and recipient waters as well as in source and treated drinking waters. Micropollutants are commonly present in low individual concentrations, however, the complex mixtures can be of environmental or health concern and can further not be assessed by targeted chemical analysis alone. Effect-based methods, using cell-based (in vitro) bioassays, is a promising tool for improved monitoring of water quality as the methods allow measuring the total effect from both known and unknown compounds, as well as transformation products, metabolites, and cocktail effects.

In this webinar we want to provide more information about effect-based methods, why the methods are needed, and how they can be used to improve water quality monitoring for drinking water and wastewater treatment plants.

We will further present practical examples from the application of effect-based monitoring in wastewater and drinking water treatment plants.
