Organotin speciation in seafood
Recently (2005) the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA) issued a toxicological evaluation of organotin compounds and suggested a tolerable daily intake (TDI) as low as 0.25 µg/kg bodyweight for the sum of four organotin compounds occurring in nature. ). The research at The National Food Institute focus on the determination of organotin levels in seafood samples, which is performed using GC-ICPMS. The data are used to assess human exposure via seafood and compared with present recommendations for tolerable intake.
