UK Biomonitoring Network
Following a successful meeting (see
below), organised by IGHRC and the RSC Toxicology group in January
2019, feedback suggested that an informal network, facilitated by a
website and an email list, would be beneficial.
In analytical chemistry,
biomonitoring is the measurement of the body burden of toxic
chemical compounds, elements, or their metabolites, in biological
substances. Often, these measurements are done in blood and
urine. Biomonitoring can be applied to humans (workers or
members of the general population) or wildlife (mammals, birds
(including eggs), fish, invertebrates).
Here is the start of a web page -

An awareness day, aimed
at bringing together scientists, risk assessors, risk

use for assessing the use and control of chemical substances for
humans and the environment. Presentations are available at the link
