Microplastics are any plastic-derived synthetic solid particle or polymeric matrix, ranging in size from 1 µm to 5 mm and insoluble in water.

Although microplastics are being analyzed with increasing intensity, their risk to the environment is not yet fully understood.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recently issued a call for more scientific research into microplastics to increase understanding of their possible toxicity.

Agilent offers instrumentation covering a range of techniques for the comprehensive characterization of microplastics in environmental water samples.
