How to simplify microplastic determination through a new microwave sample preparation protocol
The determination of Microplastics (MPs) has become a crucial aspect for the protection of the environment and human health. Recent studies demonstrated that the human ingestion of MPs is about 120 thousand particles annually, which comes from water, food or even air. The main effects associated with the ingestion of MPs can result in the blockage of the digestive tract and the leaching of additives and chemicals added to the production process, such as stabilizers and flame retardants. Considering the amount of plastics released in oceans every year, fish are one of the primary ways for humans to absorb MPs; therefore, adequate methods are required to be able to determine MPs in fish tissue in a fast and efficient way.
- A single method for microplastics and elemental contaminants determination was developed
- A protocol for environmental risk assessment monitoring is based on selective fish digestion.
- Microplastics must be also considered a potential source of toxic elements to marine environment
