Chromium is a naturally occurring element found in rocks, animals, plants, soil, and in volcanic dust and gases. Chromium is present in the environment in several different forms. The most common forms are chromium(0), chromium(III), and chromium(VI). No taste or odor is associated with chromium compounds.
Chromium(III) occurs naturally in the environment and is an essential nutrient. Chromium(VI) and chromium(0) are generally produced by industrial processes.
The metal chromium, which is the chromium(0) form, is used for making steel. Chromium(VI) and chromium(III) are used for chrome plating, dyes and pigments, leather tanning, and wood preserving.
Chromium (VI) compounds have the most significant effects on health and can cause damage to the nose, inflamation of the lungs, allergic reactionns, kidney damage and lung cancer.
This test is for anyone who is worried abut chromium exposure either from the workplace or envirronment.
It is also for employers required to carry out biological monitoring for workers potentially exposed to mercury.
