Assay Techniques for Detection of Exposure to Sulfur Mustard, Cholinesterase Inhibitors, Sarin, Soman, GF, and Cyanide [open pdf - 1MB]
This technical bulletin provides analytical techniques to identify toxic chemical agents in urine or blood samples. It is intended to provide the clinician with laboratory tests to detect exposure to sulfur mustard, cholinesterase inhibitors, sarin, soman, GF, and cyanide. Includes lists of supplies and suggested vendors, suggested materials and methods for detection, charts concerning the retention times of the derivatized acids, electron impact mass spectra, positive CI mass spectra, conditions for measuring the concentration ranges of CN, precision of CN measurements in aqueous solution, and precision and recovery of CN from blood in vitro.
