Incorporation of the chemical warfare agent sulfur mustard (SM) produces a covalent adduct with human serum albumin (HSA) representing an established plasma biomarker of poisoning. Bioanalytical verification requires both plasma generation from whole blood and shipping to specialized laboratories following strict guidelines for complex packaging. These needs often push the infrastructural boundary in crisis regions and war zones. Therefore, we herein originally introduce different reliable… CONTINUE READING
