Organophosphate Ester (OPE) Flame Retardants & Plasticizers

Exposure to OPE can be measured by quantifying their metabolites in urine, or parent compounds in environmental samples, such as indoor air, hand wipes, house dust or wristbands. For more details see Exposure to Organophosphate Ester (OPE) Flame Retardants & Plasticizers.

Biospecimens: Volume requirement - Typically 0.1-1.0 mL of urine
