Tests to detect and measure specific compounds

SkillCell is developing a range of tests to detect the main endocrine disruptors / pesticides used in agriculture and industry in food and drink. Our aim is to help consumers and professionals better understand and control the agri-food products they eat and produce.

The company is specifically focusing on several chemical compounds suspected to have an impact on human health and / or on the environment:

  • Glyphosate, a widely used pesticide of which the impact on human health is widely discussed;
  • Chlordecone, a highly toxic pesticide that was used for example in the Caribbean and the USA.
  • Neonicotinoid insecticides, suspected to be partially responsible for the decrease in bee population;

The first tests are expected to be commercialized in 2021.
