The RECETOX research infrastructure (RI) was established and is further developer through the European Structural and Investment Funds as well as by national resources.

The RECETOX RI supports operation of long term environmental and population studies, analyses of a broad range of anthropogenic and natural toxins in environmental matrices or in biological tissues, as well as the development of complex soft ware tools for management, analysis, interpretation, and visualization of available data.

Since 2010, the RECETOX RI has been included in the Czech Roadmap of Large Infrastructures for Research, Development and Innovation endorsed by the Czech government. Infrastructure provides support and facilities to the RECETOX research programmes, covers its own research projects, and is also openly accessible to international/national users in the open access mode.

RECETOX RI consists of three core facilities covering three crucial aspects of the research area of Environment and Health.

  1. Trace analytical laboratories (accredited by ČSN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005)
  2. Environmental databases and information systems
  3. Epidemiological studies

RECETOX RI Core Facilities are OPEN to the researchers from Czech Republic and abroad and offer at one site:

  • centralised scientific equipment
  • open access
  • service
  • training and education
