The presence of an increasingly complex array of pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) in water bodies throughout the world is placing a greater demand on techniques used to screen for these compounds. In combination with UNIFI, an integrated scientific information system, it is now possible to screen for the presence of PPCPs, their fragments, adducts, and potential metabolites in a routine laboratory environment. This application note describes the use of Waters Screening Platform Solution in combination with the UNIFI Toxicology library to screen a local well water sample for the presence of a large number (>1000) of PPCPs, pesticides, and drugs of abuse.
