Title (EN) AN ULTRASENSITIVE MICROTRACE PROCEDURE FOR MONITORING THE ORIGIN, MOVEMENT AND FATE OF ANY LIQUID OR SOLID MATERIAL
(FR) PROCEDE DE MICRODETECTION ULTRASENSIBLE SERVANT A CONTROLER L'ORIGINE, LE DEPLACEMENT ET LA DESTINATION D'UNE MATIERE LIQUIDE OU SOLIDE
Abstract:
(EN) A method of monitoring the movement of a material which comprises adding to the material, as a microtrace additive, DNA molecules, sampling the resulting material after movement thereof and detecting the presence of said microtrace additive in the sample. The method is particularly suitable for use in monitoring the movement of oil shipments and the microtrace additive is selected such that it will remain in the oil phase in the event the oil is dispersed in water e.g. sea water.
(FR) Un procédé de contrôle du déplacement d'une matière qui comprend l'introduction dans cette matière de molécules d'ADN comme additif de microdétection, le prélèvement d'un échantillon de la matière obtenue, après son déplacement, et la détection de la présence dudit additif de microdétection dans l'échantillon. Le procédé se prête particulièrement au contrôle du déplacement de cargaisons de pétrole et on sélectionne l'additif de microdétection pour qu'il se maintienne dans le milieu pétrolier au cas où le pétrole se disperse dans l'eau, particulièrement l'eau de mer.
