TVMDL now offers a test to detect desmethylbromethalin, the toxic metabolite of Bromethalin. Bromethalin is a non-anticoagulant rodenticide that causes CNS signs such as paralysis, convulsions and death. It is available as bars (blocks), pellets, seeds, and worms (to treat moles). Its use and availability is becoming more common than traditional anticoagulant rodenticides. This test is performed using liquid chromatography – tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) and requires adipose tissue, brain, liver and/or bait.
SPECIMEN: One or more of the following: 2 to 5 grams of adipose tissue, brain, liver and/or bait.
TURNAROUND: Performed in College Station Monday through Friday, with results within 2-5 business days.
