Detection in food and water the main endocrine disruptors / pesticides

SkillCell develops a range of tests to detect in food (fruits, vegetables, etc.) and water the main endocrine disruptors / pesticides used in agriculture and industry. 

The company will focus in particular on several chemical compounds suspected to have an impact on human health and / or on environment:

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

This test aims to help consumers, industrials, etc. to better understand and control the agri-food products they eat, produce, etc.

The first tests are expected to be commercialized in 2019.
