The University of Jyväskylä presented TOXI-triage project at the European Researchers' Night on Friday 29 September 2017.
TOXI-triage participated in the Resilience Conference 2017, on 20-21 September: ‘Responding to Complex Threats: Floods, Blackouts,and Hybrid Attacks’.
Paul Thomas presented TOXI-triage in the Session ‘Research Methodological Approaches’ and the TOXI-triage display generated interest in the project.
In order to deliver reliable results for a multitude of different scenarios, e.g. emergency preparedness, environmental monitoring, nuclear decommissioning and waste management, there is a constant process of method development in the field of radioanalytical chemistry. This work presents the results of a method comparison exercise aimed at quantifying 90Sr and 239,240Pu in environmental soil samples, with the intention of evaluating the performance and applicability of different methods. From the methods examined in this work, recommendations are given in order to find a radioanalytical measurement procedure, for 90Sr and 239,240Pu analysis, which is fit-forpurpose for a particular scenario.

Work over the first eighteen months of the project has identified metabolomic markers of exposure to pesticides and toxic alcohols. A publication by Prof Thomas's Loughborough group reported identification of the toxic alcohols methanol, ethylene glycol, and 1,3-propandiol, and their metabolites, as well as ethanol in human saliva.

- Introducing the Mikkeli team
- Milestones update
What is the triage process and how does it change in the case of a CBRN event? How to behave in the hot zone? What is needed to get a full operational picture as a first responder ambulance crew or firefighter in full protective gear? How can this be enhanced by TOXI-triage technology? These are some of the issues which will be addressed.
