The present invention relates to the fields of antibodies, antigen binding fragments and immunodiagnostics. Specifically, the invention relates to a recombinant anti- body or antigen binding fragment for binding thyroid hormone T4 (thyroxine) and halogenated bisphenol A. Also, the present invention relates to an isolated nucleic acid molecule comprising a nucleotide sequence that encodes the recombinant antibody or antigen binding fragment of the present invention, as well as an ex- pression vector and host cell comprising the nucleic acid molecule of the present invention. Still, the present invention relates to a method of producing a recombi- nant antibody or antigen binding fragment for binding T4 thyroid hormone and hal- ogenated bisphenol A, a test kit and an immunoassay comprising the recombinant antibody or antigen binding fragment of the present invention, and a method for determining T4 thyroid hormone and/or halogenated bisphenol A levels in a sam- ple of a subject. Still further, the present invention relates to a method of treating a sample, e.g. an immunoaffinity-based sample preparation method for enrich- ment of the halogenated bisphenol A from a sample.
