Environmental Pollutants Panel is a GC/MS urine analysis for assessment of exposure to common environmental and occupational chemicals.
Chronic exposure to a number of occupational and environmental pollutants is a growing concern in today's industrialized communities: their effects on human health are profound. Many have been linked to a variety of pathologies including neuropsychological and neuropsychological dysfunction, leukopenia, dyspnea, anemia, and certain cancers, to name a few.

Chemicals in the report include metabolites of:
Xylene, a ubiquitos petrochemical solvent, is first oxidized via p450 enzymes then conjugated with glycine to for 2- and 3-methylhippurate.
- Phthalic Acid Esters
Phthalates are used in the manufacture of plastics to allow for flexibility and to soften resins. Not only that, but it is found in everything from makeup to detergents, shampoos to time-released pharmaceutical drugs. This toxin is a well known endocrine disruptor as well as causing neurological and developmental disorders. It can interfere with tryptophan metabolism resulting in an increase in quinolinic acid, a pro-inflammatory and neurotoxic compound. Phthalates have also been implicated in abnormal fetal development, especially in male fetuses.
Parabens are a widely used family of preservatives found in many cosmetic, pharmaceutical and industrial products. Parabens have inherent estrogenic and other hormone related activity and have been implicated in the growth and development of human breast cancer cell lines.
- A listing of sources of each chemicals tested is provided with the patient's report.
Sample collection utilizes our proprietary urine Dip 'N Dry collection strips to maximize analyte stability and recovery.

Allergic and other hypersensitivity reactions to foods and aeroallergens are characterized by elevated allergen-specific antibody levels in the affected individual's blood. Research indicates that these types of reactions are implicated in a number of health problems. Through our Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) methodology we provide a useful tool for practitioners to assess their patients' allergies and sensitivities to a variety of common allergens.
