4 April 2016
Over the past decade there have been many health concerns about BPA on the human body, including effect on thyroid function and certain cancers. Therefore, the levels of BPA in specific products, such as children’s toys, is closely monitored. This application note presents an effective method for the extraction and HPLC analysis of BPA in three children’s toys using the PerkinElmer Altus™ HPLC System. The sensitivity levels were well below the maximum safe levels stipulated by both the FDA and EFSA regulatory agencies.
