Toxicology – Occupational Health – Metal toxicity assays – Eurofins Biomnis
 

 

The field of toxicology is expanding particularly around drugs, but also in occupational medicine including metal toxicity assays.

Eurofins Biomnis performs assays on several metals (lead, aluminium, selenium, copper, and zinc) in blood, plasma and urine samples using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). Occupational medicine accounts for a large number of requests, but most cases are related to potential toxicity levels in dialysed patients, markers of oxidative stress, or urinary markers of exposure to organic solvents (hippuric acid for toluene exposure, trans acid and trans-muconic acid for benzene exposure…)

The different drugs (cannabis, amphetamines, cocaine and opiates) and their metabolites are also identified and assayed in plasma by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). Our pathologists are members of the SFTA (Société Française de Toxicologie Analytique; French Society of Analytical Toxicology).
