Accumulations of toxic elements from occupational or environmental exposures from toxic release in the air, soil, or industrial waste streams can cause adverse health problems. This profile assesses urinary excretion of toxic elements acquired through either chronic or acute exposure. It may be used in conjunction with a chelation challenge, to assess clearance of stored toxic elements. Please note, the chelating agent is not supplied with the kit, and you would need to advise your patient accordingly.
