Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) in Whole Blood GC/MS-head space (code  GC77110) – 100 tests package.

 

INSIGHTS

Volatile organic compound (VOC) are organic chemicals that have a high vapor pressure at room temperature.
Some VOCs are dangerous to human health or cause harm to the environment. For instance, MEK and
Methylisobutyl ketone (or MIBK) are also described in literature as a possible cause of optical neuritis.
Acetone is a product that is part of physiological biochemistry. Some triggering conditions for acetonuria are
fatigue, physical stress, high fever, fasting, prolonged physical exertion or the intake of too much fatty food.
Methanol is used in the production of cellulose, synthetic resins, formaldehyde, acetic acid and fuels. In the
occupational field the most important route of exposure is the respiratory one. Ethanol, after ingestion, is
rapidly absorbed by the stomach and small intestine and is distributed throughout the body water. Isopropyl
alcohol poisoning can occur by ingestion, inhalation or absorption by the skin. Symptoms of isopropyl
alcohol poisoning include: hot flashes, headache, dizziness, central nervous system depression. Benzene
is a highly flammable volatile liquid. Inhalation of a very high level of benzene can lead to death. Toluene
is a volatile, colourless liquid used as solvent. It is classified as harmful and highly flammable; however, it
is less toxic than benzene. Xylene refers to the mixture orthoxylene, meta-xylene and para-xylene. People’s
exposure to very high levels of xylene for shorstem depression. Benzene is a highly flammable volatile liquid.
Inhalation of a very high level of benzene can lead to death. Toluene is a volatile, colourless liquid used
as solvent. It is classified as harmful and highly flammable; however, it is less toxic than benzene. Xylene
refers to the mixture orthoxylene, meta-xylene and para-xylene. People’s exposure to very high levels of
xylene for short periods result in irritation of the skin, eyes and respiratory tract, liver and kidney damage,
etc. Dichloromethane might cause carcinogen, CNS depression, eye and skin irritation. Exposure to high
concentrations of styrene causes transient irritation of the conjunctival and nasal mucous membranes and
frequently headache.
