IES is exhibiting at SETAC Europe 32nd Annual Meeting on 15th-19th May, an event in Copenhagen for environmental toxicology and chemistry professionals to get together and discuss the best ways to evaluate the impact of chemicals in the environment.

SETAC is the perfect opportunity to introduce our Cawood Research sector. IES was recently acquired by Cawood and is joined in Cawood Research by CROs i2L Research and Mambo-Tox. We will be exhibiting all together to demonstrate our scientific expertise in environmental services.

i2L Research broadens our capabilities with its specialist efficacy studies on agrochemicals and household pesticides. Mambo-Tox, another CRO specialising in terrestrial ecotoxicological studies for evaluating the effects of pesticides, gives us greater capacity for our existing services. Together, our integrated network of experts and specialist studies result in broader innovative services and swifter timelines for even greater customer service.

All our experts will be available at stands 13 and 14. Register for your ticket to SETAC today: https://europe2022.setac.org/register/.

We are looking forward to seeing you.

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.
