Many industrial chemicals pose serious health risks at the workplace. Long and short-term exposure to these chemicals can be determined by biological monitoring-the measurement of chemicals (or their breakdown products) in exposed individuals.
Biomonitoring reflects the total uptake of the chemical by inhalation, ingestion or absorption through the skin. However, the use of this technique has to date been severely limited by the cost and complexity of test methods through laborious physico-chemical techniques by Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GCMS).
In collaboration with AB Biomonitoring Ltd. , UK, Chemlab has the capability to offer occupational exposure monitoring to chemicals in the work place such as Benzene (Urinary s-PMA ), Ethylene Oxide (Blood), Propylene Oxide (Blood) etc.
Our principal have developed innovative techniques which completely overcome the previous restrictions.This will enable a wider application of biomonitoring as both a monitoring and survey tool and environmental exposures and encourage the deployment of best HSE working practice.
