We plan to develop innovative tools to measure and characterize MNPs and potential contaminants in food, water and air.
We are committed to understanding the effect of MNPs combined with potentially harmful environmental contaminants adhering to their surfaces and finding their way into the human body.
We aim to examine a possible link between MNPs and their role in food allergy and allergic asthma.
The Belgian daily talks to Imptox scientist Prof. Andreja Rajkovic and raises awareness about micro- and nanoplastics and their contaminants in our food.
A group of Imptox scientists from Ghent University and Sciensano supervised the design and development of an effective method to quantify microcystin in fruits & vegetables and published their findings in Separations.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations recently published a review on human exposure to microplastics via dietary sources.
