Being a Swiss company, we always make sure our staff is provided with enough chocolate to get them through the holidays.

This year, the Easter bunny has brought us some more unconventional gifts instead of the usual chocolate eggs.

Happy Easter from everyone at IES!

As we go through the final stages of testing our new greenhouse for study use, we’ve decided to activate the mood lighting feature to brighten up our workspace.

We are looking forward to officially unveiling our new greenhouse soon, which will allow us further capacities for crop metabolism studies in future.

CHIMIA

Pharmaceutical residues in the environment are a global topic highlighted by OECD as of particular importance because they can affect the photosynthetic activity of primary producers and subsequently the primary biomass production and carbon dioxide fixation. The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has proposed to implement a new tailored environmental risk assessment scheme, published in a new draft guideline. Threshold effect levels to three fixed representative species of green algae and cyanobacteria will be required.

In an upcoming article in the CHIMIA International Journal for Chemistry special Environment issue this coming Spring, IES will explore this topic. Our authors Arno WessStefan Höger and Schmidt Thomas will review and compare contamination of various different natural waters with antibiotics, as well as present an overview of published effect data on eukaryotic and prokaryotic algae in order to discuss the representativeness of the selected species.
