Laboratory tests, specific for mirex exposure, can detect mirex in blood, faeces, fat or breast milk. These tests are not routinely available at the doctor's office because they require special equipment available at specialized laboratories. Since mirex is stored in your body for a long time and slowly excreted, the tests can detect mirex for a long time after exposure has stopped.  However, they are unsatisfactory indicators of the amount of mirex to which organism have been exposed because a long time may have passed since it was exposed.
