Immunoanalytical techniques find growing acceptance in the field of environmental monitoring (Van Emon and Gerlach 1995). Although immunoassays have many attractive features, the lack of multiresidue approaches is a serious obstacle in environmental monitoring. In many environmental situations the simultaneous determination of more than one analyte is required. The situation is further complicated by the fact, that the analyte panels, which are to be detected, may vary with location and season. The RIANA project (RIver ANAlyser) is focused on immunoanalytical tools, that allow to detect multiple analytes in a single run. The application areas foreseen are online monitoring - e.g. at pumping sites or transportable devices for field use. In this paper we describe the concept and give first results
