Commercially available ground-water immunoassays (RaPID Assay) are being evaluated to determine their potential value for measuring herbicides or their metabolites in urine. Preliminary investigations of matrix effects and cross-reactivities indicate potential usefulness for the atrazine kit, but not the metolachlor kit, as a urinary biomonitoring tool.
