Abstract:
The Toxicological centre consists of two divisions, the Clinical Toxicology branch and the Environmental Research branch. The first branch performs clinical toxicological research, forensic research and routine analyses for the Belgian Federal Public Service Justice. The Environmental Research branch primarily focuses on persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and on the development of new analytical procedures to analyse these chemicals. Within the marine field, the Toxicological centre conducts research on the presence of POPs in fish, eels and marine mammals.
