If you decide to have blood tested, remember the following:
PCB blood analysis is expensive and should only be performed by labs that have experience testing for PCBs.
Blood analysis should test for full range of congeners.
It is not recommended to have blood tested labs such as Metpath or Quest since they do not test the full
range of PCB congeners.
