Toxicology testing for environmental and occupational safety

We investigate chemicals, particles including nanoparticles, and complex mixtures as they occur at workplaces, in the environment, and in consumer products. Profound knowledge in inhalation toxicology, aerosol process technology, chemical analysis, and toxicological pathology are the hallmarks of our expertise in this field.
