Micro- and nanoplastics entering the marine and freshwater food chains can introduce harmful pollutants which effect reproduction, growth, immune response and productivity. In addition, these particles can accumulate in tissues and organs over time and potentially produce negative effects. Studies have found that chemicals linked to micro- and nanoplastics correlate to health complications such as diabetes, obesity, infertility, cardio vascular disorders, neurological problems and cancer.
This white paper explains the problem of microplastics in water and what are the best instruments to trace, identify, and classify microbeads in products, food, and the environment.
This article explains microscopic particle pollution in water with the effect also on food chain and decribes IR spectrometry analysis technique used to determine and quantify all kinds of plastic in the water.
Microplastics are tiny plastic particles that form as a result of the plastic content in consumer products and the breakdown of large plastics. Once they have entered the environment, microplastics become pollutant, causing harm to the environment.
