Biomonitoring

Environmental contaminants can have a significant impact on human health. Reducing these risks is one of our main objectives. Our biomonitoring services provide a deeper understanding of the environmental chemicals and metabolites present in biological samples, providing invaluable insight into exposure assessment and potential health effects. Using validated analytical methods, we generate reliable data essential for informed decision-making, regulatory compliance and the promotion of a healthier, more sustainable world.
