Desing and realization of studies
CELSPAC studies include various types of population studies, such as the long-term ELSPAC study or the mother-child TNG study. CELSPAC studies collect different types of data on individual exposure and health. This data is stored in large databases, parts of which are made available to scientists and research teams. We also offer services enabling the design and realization of your population studies.
The new RECETOX Biobank collects, processes, stores and distributes various types of biological material and related data collected in population studies such as CELSPAC.
