Gentoxicity ,Cytotoxicity and Endocrine disruptor assays.

XenoScreen YES/YAS Assay kit for the detection of estrogenic and androgenic endocrine disruptors:

Endocrine disruptors are synthetic chemicals in the environment that mimic the actions of sex hormones and are associated with adverse reproductive and developmental effects on animal physiology.

Of major concern are such chemicals that are found in waste and surface waters, but also in certain industrial products such as plastic food containers, chemical mixtures or cosmetic products. They may interfere with the endocrine system and produce adverse developmental, reproductive, neurological and immune effects in animals and humans.
