biologic sampling

bi·o·log·ic sam·pling

denotes sampling that can be taken without jeopardy to the whole organism (for example, for hematologic or biochemic study). Because of the complexity of biologic samples, it is usually supposed that the source of the sample is thoroughly mixed and hence representative; this assumption is often not true, for example, in genetic studies in mosaic patients.

However, without some confirmation of the exposure estimates through an approved method of biologic sampling, it is often not possible to validate the accuracy of the exposure assessment.
Participation in environmental and biologic sampling tends to drop over time and can be relatively low for certain types of samples.
Environmental and biologic sampling methods can identify common mixtures for further study and inform precautionary exposure reduction.
Given the complexity of assessing exposure to nonpersistent pesticides, it is likely that both environmental and biologic sampling will be needed for many compounds.
Biologic sampling could then be targeted at specifically ranked groups rather than applied to everyone with the same intensity.
