A reduced-volume, high-throughput analytical method has been developed for the quantification of organophosphorus (OP) nerve agent metabolites in human urine. Metabolites of soman, sarin, cyclohexyl-sarin, VX, and Russian-VX were quantified down to a lowest reportable limit of 1 ng/mL in human urine. One hundred microliter urine samples were preconcentrated(More)
Tetramethylene disulfotetramine (tetramine) is a rodenticide associated with numerous poisonings was extracted and quantified in human urine using both gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) and GC/tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS). 1200 μL samples were prepared using a (13)C(4)-labeled internal standard, a 96-well format, and a polydivinyl-benzene(More)
RATIONALE Although use is prohibited, concerns remain for human exposure to nerve agents during decommissioning, research, and warfare. High-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) was compared to tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) analysis for the quantitation of five urinary metabolites specific to VX, Russian VX, soman, sarin and cyclosarin nerve agents.
