The quality of the potable and purified for haemodialysis waters used in the National Institute of Nephrology was evaluated
since 2002 up to now. A total of 20 chemical components were analyzed. The analytical results were compared with the admissible
maximum concentrations according to the Cuban Standard NC 92-02:85 for potable water and with the Spanish Standard UNE 111-301-90,
related to the quality of water for use in haemodialysis. The quality of both types of water was found to comply with the
Standards regulations. The CEADEN analytical chemistry laboratory operates a quality management system since 1992, that was
credited according to ISO/IEC 17025 requirements.

Twenty six elements was studied preliminary in the superficial sediments of Havana Bay using gamma activation analysis by
the electron accelerator microtron MT-25 at the Flerov Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions, JINR. Samples from five zones of Havana
Bay including the three coves were analyzed. The obtained results show a close relation between the concentration levels of
the studied elements and the pollution sources. Some elements (As, Ba, Ni, Pb, Cu, Zn, Fe, Cr, Mn) have high concentration
levels compared to the values for other environmental marine sediments reported in the literature.
