Preditox : genetic assays for safety use

Samples

Updated : 10/10/2017

We work with low quantities (of the order of the milligram) on all types of samples, be in solid (powder) or in liquid forms (DMSO or other solvents):

  • Environmental samples: river or drinking water, sediments...
  • Pharmaceutical, cosmetic, alimentary or agrochemical samples: purified compounds, complex mixture, chemicals, oils, drugs...
  • Raw materials
  • Other...

Due to the technique used, even auto-fluorescent compounds can be efficiently studied.

The PrediTox team have demonstrated the genotoxicity of numerous chemicals: pesticides, mycotoxins, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH), bisphenols, heterocyclic aromatic amines (HAA), pathogenic bacteria, drugs, metals, food oil... (see references).
