While tests do exist to measure pesticide metabolites in biological samples, these tests mostly work for what a person is exposed to at that precise moment in time (or perhaps a few days or weeks prior). Metals can be measured on a bit longer time frame depending on the biological sample. These types of tests wouldn’t normally be performed unless toxicity is suspected or if they are being used for an epidemiological study.
