Pesticide (Current Use) Analytes

Exposure to pesticides in current use can be measured by quantifying their metabolites in urine, or in environmental samples, such as house dust or wristbands. The levels of current-use pesticides and their metabolites in biospecimens reflect recent exposure in the last few days. For more details see Exposure to Pesticides.

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

Core analytes (subset of analytes that will be measured and reported by any targeted HHEAR Lab Hub that provides Pesticide (Current Use) analysis in urine):

  • 6-chloronicotinic acid
  • Diethyldithiophosphate
  • Diethylphosphate
  • Diethylthiophosphate
  • Dimethyldithiophosphate
  • Dimethylphosphate
  • Dimethylthiophosphate
  • 4-fluoro-3-phenoxybenzoic acid
  • 4-nitrophenol
  • 3-phenoxybenzoic acid
  • 3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridinol

Environmental Samples: Volume requirement - one gram of dust

  • Chlorpyrifos
  • Cypermethrin* (mixed stereoisomers)
  • Fipronil
  • Permethrin (cis)
  • Permethrin (trans)
  • Pyraclostrobin
