The Laboratory of Environmental Toxicology at the National Institute of Chemical Physics and Biophysics offers regulatory (not accredited) assays for environmental safety evaluation of chemicals and materials, testing of antimicrobial (including non-porous and photocatalytic) surfaces and substances, characterization of the physicochemical properties of nanomaterials and chemicals and evaluation of their biological effects in vitro using various cell lines. Our experience could be especially useful for developers of environmentally safe materials and antimicrobials.
The National Institute of Chemical Physics and Biophysics (NICPB) is an interdisciplinary Research Institute carrying out basic and applied research. The Laboratory of Environmental Toxicology in NICPB (led by academician Anne Kahru) has over 20 years of experience in environmental toxicology and over 10 years of experience in nanotoxicology.
