|Plastic products||Children’s toys, Stationery, Food packaging and containers, Medical tubing, Blood bags|
|Pharmaceuticals||Some time-release pills, such as sleeping pills|
Chronic exposure to a number of occupational and environmental pollutants is a growing concern in today’s industrialized world: their effects on human health are profound. Many have been linked to a variety of pathologies including neuropsychological and neuropsychological dysfunction, leukopenia, dyspnea, anemia, and certain cancers, to name a few.
Our Environmental Pollutants Biomonitor assesses the extent of toxicity in your body towards seven common toxic chemicals from your urine.
State-of-the-Art Testing Technology
Sample will be sent to our laboratories in the United States for analysis employing the advance approach: Liquid Chromatography/ Triple Quadrupole Mass Spectrometry platform (LC/QQQ). This method measures chemical markers even at low level for optimum test results.
Air-dried Strips – for Higher Stability
A first morning urine sample on our signature Air-dried Strips is required to profile the toxicity within.
Liquid urine has poor stability, as degraded after sampling, and the freeze-thaw cycle between transportation may discourage the quality of urine sample. The Air-dried Strips ensure sample stability in storage and transportation even in room temperature condition up to 55 days.
Our Air-dried Strips was validated to provide almost 100% of the liquid urine value (r² of 0.997), with great stability and recovery of the analytes.
Comprehensive Interpretative Support
You will receive Environmental Pollutants Report and a comprehensive Interpretative Report in 2-3 weeks. Our Interpretative Report is a powerful guide, where you can find a list of sources for each chemical tested, with a customized detoxification protocol, nutritional support program and possible follow-up treatments for you to achieve the optimal health.
Exposure occurs when a chemical comes in contact with a person. A portion of that exposure dose is absorbed into the body, where it’s distributed, metabolized and excreted in the urine. Environmental exposures to these toxins (parent compounds) result in increases in body burden that are reflected in urine, which is an accurate biomarker of exposure. Urine analysis is also a standard method of measuring chemical exposure as it is the medium which carries the various waste products that are filtered out of the blood system. Benzene exposure for example, is measured through urinary trans-muconic acid.
