Our services

We are international experts in the assessment and minimization of the impact of chemicals in the environment and science-based solutions for their sustainable use underpinned by high-quality research and first-class facilities. The key aspects of this work are scope of expertise; insight and interpretation and multi-disciplinary interactions in:

  • Ecotoxicology: research on the effects of chemicals on wildlife in the terrestrial and aquatic environment
  • Environmental Exposure: research on the fate and behaviour of chemicals after their release in the environment
  • Human Exposure: research into the exposure of humans to chemicals and the potential risks from exposure
  • Analytical Chemistry: identification and quantification of chemicals in food and the environment
