Biological analysis

RPS delivers a range of biological analysis including routine pathology services, drug and alcohol screening and biological monitoring to support a variety of functions ranging from pre-employment screening, routine medicals, occupational exposure through to drug and alcohol testing in the workplace.

These test help to ensure employers comply with current legislation such as the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 1994, to safeguard employees and members of the public from drug and alcohol misuse and to comply with legal requirements when operating vehicles, plant and machinery.

Biological monitoring

Biological monitoring provides a way of assessing chemical exposure by measuring the chemical or its breakdown products in urine or blood.

This type of monitoring is particularly useful in places where chemical exposure can result from inadequate equipment, incorrect use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) or changes in work processes. It also provides confirmation that the existing control measures are adequate or that additional preventative steps and controls need to be put into place, to demonstrate the employers are preventing or controlling exposure in the workplace. 

RPS provides the following analyses:

  • Isocyanate biomarkers in urine (HAD, 2,4-TDA, 2,6-TDA, IPDA and MDA)
  • Trace metals in urine and blood
  • Styrene and as mandelic acid in urine
  • Solvents in urine
  • Benzene exposure metabolite S-phenyl-mercapturic acid (S-PMA) in urine
  • Glyphosate in urine
  • Xylene as methylhippuric acid in urine
  • Creatinine in urine
