BENZENE BIOMONITORING


Benzene is an important industrial chemical and common environmental pollutant. Benzene is found in most fossil fuels, car exhausts and cigarette smoke. Long-term exposure to low levels of benzene may lead to anaemia, leukaemia and cancer.  


Biomark’s test measures the urinary biomarker S-PMA (S-phenylmercapturic acid). S-PMA is a specific benzene metabolite and presence of this biomarker in urine confirms inhalation, ingestion or absorption of benzene.


The use of S-PMA in occupational biomonitoring is recommended by:


ACGIH (American Conference of  Governmental Hygienists)

UK HSE (Health and Safety Executive)

DFG  (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft)


Biomark’s test has the following advantages –



Biomark’’s test is available through Chemitrace Limited and is now being used by the chemical and petrochemical industry to determine work place exposure.
