Details

Tittle:
A contract research organisation (CRO) offers services for mesocosm and in-controlled environment studies.
Summary:
A French contract research organization, specialized in environmental toxicology and ecotoxicology, has developed a new service dedicated to mesocosm study. This technology consists in analyzing and testing the impact of products on indoor soil or aquatic system.
The organization is interested in working with laboratories, universities, and companies in the frame of a technical cooperation agreement or services agreement.
Description:
The company has developed a method to test the impact of a product on indoor soil or aquatic system, to analyse physiological or chemical answers following an exposure.
Based on its experience, its last-version exposure system and its commitment to high quality science, it can design and conceive unique aquatic and terrestrial mesocosms answering to specific request.

The company can assist different R-Y-D projects and studies (cosmetic, chemistry, pharmaceutical projects...) that need specific environmental control, thanks to different technologies:
- Ecorium/Ecolux: a mesocosm of intermediate size (1m3) for soil, aquatic system and sedimentary environment with its proper control system for temperature and lighting.
- Climatic chambers (humidity, temperature and lighting adjustable) with biosafety level 2 or 3 to handle potentially dangerous substances and/or organisms and invasive species.
- Aquatic chemotactic choice chamber: it´s allows to simulate simultaneously two parallel flowrates on which the impact of the test substance is measured in sea water or freshwater.

The company is interested in working with companies, universities and laboratories with projects taking account environmental impact in the frame of a technical cooperation agreement or services agreement.
Advantages and Innovations:
- Installation unique in Europe - 6 700 m2 of laboratory with biosafety level 2 and 3.
- 4 independent experimental halls (225 m2/hall): 3 halls with 5 m ceiling height, 1 hall with 7m ceiling height
- 30 laboratories climatically controlled rooms
- Temperature regulated between 19-21 °C
- Hygrometry regulated between 45-65 %
- Specific studies via Mesocosm studies (Ecorium/Ecolux and Aquatic chemotactic choice chamber).
- Research team with complementary expertises (4 doctors and 10 engineers dedicated to the studies)
