Laboratory tests can detect toxaphene in blood, urine, breast milk and body tissues. These tests may show low, moderate, or excessive exposure to these compounds, but cannot tell the exact amount you were exposed to, or whether there will be an adverse effects. These tests are not routinely available at the doctor's office because they require special equipment available at specialized laboratories.  Toxaphene leaves the body quickly, so the tests can only detect it within several days after exposure.
