CASES, Gabriel Guillermo et al. Quantification of free Bisphenol-A in human umbilical cord blood at trace level. Acta bioquím. clín. latinoam. [online]. 2018, vol.52, n.1, pp.79-87. ISSN 0325-2957.

Bisphenol-A (BPA) is widely used in the production of polycarbonate plastics and therefore, it is present in products of massive use. It is known as an endocrine disruptor and has an impact on gonadal and central nervous system development. Exposure of pregnant women to BPA is particularly worrying for the developing fetus because it crosses the placenta into the cord blood and amniotic fluid, coupled with little or no fetal enzymatic activity to biotransform it into inactive BPA-glucuronide, causing possible harmful effects to the offspring at very low and sustained doses. With the aim to study the exposure to BPA and its effects on the population of Argentina, an analytical method was developed and validated by liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry, which allows the quantification of trace amounts of free BPA (estrogenic, active form) in plasma of umbilical cord. The method involves protein precipitation by the addition of acetonitrile and subsequent centrifugation and injection of supernatant. An isocratic elution was used in liquid chromatography, and mass spectrometry was performed using negative Electrospray mode in multiple reaction monitoring. Quantified free BPA values are in the range of 1.0 to 12.1 ng/mL, Detection Limit: 0,6 ng/mL.
