Qué problema resuelve
Dioxins are highly toxic compounds produced by combustion in industrial and natural processes. They
accumulate in the environment and the animal trophic chain (livestock, seafood) and damage the immune system,
interfere with hormones and generate cancer. Nowadays, livestock industry spends billions in analyzing for the
presence of contaminants with expensive, time consuming and unspecific chemical methods were the samples
need to be sent to a specialized laboratory, we propose a user-friendly, sensitive/specific, field method for dioxin
