Environmental hormones act as endocrine disruptors, potentially upsetting development and other important functions in humans and aquatic species. Hormones have been increasingly found in environmental and drinking water systems. Regulatory agencies have responded by requiring that these compounds be monitored.

Designed especially for the Thermo Scientific Ultimate™ 3000/TSQ Vantage™ LC-MS/MS system, this kit includes everything you need for the detection of hormones in drinking water according to EPA Method 539.
