8700 LDIR Accurately Identifies and Quantifies Microplastics in Infant Formula

Reports of the omnipresence of microplastics have mainly focused on their presence in the environment, but there is a growing interest in investigating the health impacts of microplastics. Many people would assume that infants' exposure to microplastics would be limited. However, infant formula was found to be a possible exposure pathway. In a recent application note, the Agilent 8700 Laser Direct Infrared (LDIR) Chemical Imaging System was used to accurately identify and quantify microplastics in infant formula. The study also shows the importance of quality control in microplastics analysis.
