Abstract

Abstract Children's exposures to arsenic (As), lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), and cadmium (Cd) are of particular concern in early-life. Exposures to heavy metals are traditionally measured in whole venous blood, which is costly and invasive. As an alternative we describe a method for quantifying As, Pb, Hg, and Cd in dried blood spot (DBS) samples. This article aims to validate a method for quantifying levels of As, Pb, Hg, and Cd in finger-stick DBS samples. ...
