Glyphosate in Human Urine and Breast Milk
With the advent of Roundup Ready crops, use of glyphosate has increased
markedly. The ability to measure glyphosate and its principal metabolite AMPA
in biological fluids is an important tool for studying potential glyphosate exposure.
To support glyphosate exposure research, the ATCL has added glyphosate and
AMPA analysis to its list of services based upon the method of Jensen et al. (J.
Environ. Sci. Health, Part B, 51(4):254-259, 2016). The analysis uses LC
MS/MS with the following detection and quantification limits:
Glyphosate – LOQ, 0.1 µg/L (ppb)
AMPA – LOQ, 0.5 µg/L (ppb)
Glyphosate – LOQ, 3 µg/L (ppb)
]AMPA – LOQ, 10 µg/L (ppb)
Please inquire if your research needs glyphosate analysis in another matrix.
