I am currently researching a more sensitive analytical method to detect a cancer-causing compound that features commonly in certain workplaces with the aim of creating industry exposure standards specific to this compound. We are using human urine from people who have been occupationally exposed. This picture shows the urine of each worker concentrated, cleaned out to reduce impurities, and dissolved in methanol, which allows for really beautiful red-orange colours.
