Saving Lives with Real-Time Detection of Toxic Chemicals
Dr. Xiaoguang Meng of the Center for Environmental Systems at Stevens Institute of Technology is the focus of our latest research blog entitled “Saving Lives with Real-Time Detection of Toxic Chemicals.”
This piece takes a detailed look at Dr. Meng and his team’s innovative approach using Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering for the on-site, accurate and reliable detection of toxic chemicals such as Arsenic and Perchlorate.
Arsenic contaminated groundwater affects over 140 million people worldwide while Perchlorate can be located at a number of sites across the U.S.
