Dioxins are highly hazardous chemicals produced by combustion in industrial and natural processes. They accumulate in the environment and reach our food chain. Ingestion causes damage to the immune system, deregulates hormonal systems or cancer.
Livestock and poultry industry, government agencies, among others, are forced to spend money in dioxin analysis with expensive, slow and complex methods. These analyses are performed in specialized laboratories, raising costs. There are no simple, inexpensive and fast methods for detection of these compounds on site.
The 3B dioxin biosensor is a device that allows the quantification of these toxic compounds in food, soil and other matrices. It’s a specific/sensitive, fast and easy to use method for dioxin detection on site. It is portable, so it doesn’t require trained personnel or investment in infrastructure/equipment. Our main differentiating factor is time, delivering results in 2 hours (other methods take 15 days).
