Glyphosate in water, plants, plasma, urine, tissue biopsies, and milk
With the advent of Roundup Ready application to crops, the use of glyphosate has increased markedly. The ability to measure glyphosate and its principal metabolite AMPA 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:
Instrumental limits of detection:
- Glyphosate – LOQ, 0.1 µg/L (ppb)
- AMPA – LOQ, 0.5 µg/L (ppb)
Please inquire if your research requires glyphosate analysis in another matrix.
