Tracking illicit drug use through sewer-based epidemiology

Chapter


Abstract


  • Sewer-based epidemiology (SBE) is an approach in which the concentration of chemicals, usually at parts-per-billion to parts-per-trillion levels, in domestic wastewater is analysed with high-precision liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) to estimate their consumption or exposure by populations living in the sewer catchment areas.
