To complete its catalogue, Palmer Research, the in vitro laboratory of Dermscan, from now on offers the study of endocrine disruptions.
These can be caused by the use of chemicals, pesticides and biocide. Palmer Research provides the opportunity to identify the compounds likely to interact with the human receptors to androgens (YAS test - Yeast Androgen Screen) or to estrogens (YES test – Yeast Estrogen Screen). The studies are conducted on Saccharomyces cerevisiae stem genetically modified. The colorimetric reaction obtained is measured with the spectrophotometer at 570 nm.
Fast and very sensitive, these tests allow to demonstrate that your products do not modify the hormonal activity.
