Environment

BDS offers various tests that specifically target important groups of environmental health-damaging pollutants, such as dioxins, PCBs and PAHs. In addition various assays are available for the screening of environmental samples on effects they could have on processes relating to adverse health effects such as endocrine disruption, carcinogenicity, mutagenicity and developmental toxicity.

CALUX® reporter assays are suitable for a wide range of applications regarding environmental safety assessment. Our assays have been used for identifying pollution hotspots, profiling health hazard related potencies on polluted sites, effect-directed identification of pollutants, ecological distribution of pollutants and the identification of hazards by emerging compounds.

CALUX® analysis is compatible with a range of environmental sampling strategies. Advantages of using CALUX® bioassays in environmental screenings are the measurement of effects that directly relate to human health and the independence of prior knowledge of the exact chemical composition.
