BMF 42 - X-ray contrast media

Iodinated X-ray Contrast Media (ICMs) are designed to be stable against the human metabolism. However, they also pass through the municipal wastewater system, and are frequently found in wastewater treatment plant effluents and in the receiving surface waters. ICMs themselves do not likely impose a high risk in humans due to the low toxicity, but the formation and relevance of a number of unidentified degradation products is unknown.


Chiron offers a set of native and labelled Iodinated X-ray Contrast Media for HPLC-MS analysis.
