Organophosphate (OPs) and organocarbamate (OCs) esters are widely used pesticides. Their inhibition of cholinesterases (ChEs) is a major source of their toxicity. The need for detecting exposure to OPs and OCs has resulted in continuing interest in assaying for ChEs. This paper discusses assay techniques, their usefulness as indicators of exposure, and the problem of detecting adverse effects (Weiss 1990; Wilson et al. 1992a).
