BDS offers various tests that specifically target important groups of environmental health-damaging pollutants, such as dioxins, PCBs, PAHs and PFASs. In addition, various assays are available for the screening of environmental samples on effects relating to adverse health effects such as endocrine disruption, genotoxicity and reproductive 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 is that the measurement of effects directly relate to human health and very often to that of other higher vertebrates.
