4,4'-Methylenebis(2-chloroaniline), also known as MbOCA or MOCA,
is a substance used as a curing agent in polyurethane production.
It is a suspected human carcinogen and is readily absorbed through
the skin. There is a UK Biological Monitoring
Guidance Value of 15 µmol/mol creatinine although recent
surveys have shown that companies with good occupational hygiene
control can achieve results less than 3 µmol/mol creatinine.
Polyurethane production involves the use of isocyanates, which
also have a UK Biological Monitoring Guidance Value so HSL
now offer a combined analysis of MbOCA with isocyanates (TDI and
MDI) in the same urine sample so that all health risks
(asthma and cancer) from the process can be
