Presentation of the different response schemes of Adn’tox depending on your project(s)

The methods proposed by ADn'tox can concern a wide range of studies associated to assessment of genotoxic impacts for human and environment, from field studies most often associated with exposures poorly defined, to laboratory studies on better defined chemicals and the levels of exposure. Thanks to the versatility of the techniques, the biological models can also be particularly varied, from classic models in laboratory (rodents, cell lines) to Human in epidemiologic studies, as well as all the sentinel organisms used in environment (bivalves, fish, shellfish ... )
