How Environmental Fate Works
Staphyt Environmental Services have released a video showcasing their acquisition of new technology and increase of capacity to conduct environmental fate studies. Environmental fate is the study of chemical toxicity introduced into an environment and its impact on the organisms in that environment.
In August 2021, Staphyt acquired the Rovaltain Research Company, which fostered its expansion into the agrochemical, biocide, chemical, and pharmaceutical sectors.
With a team of highly skilled and experienced scientists equipped with the latest technology, they are prepared to conduct acute and chronic ecotoxicity studies in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.
The Staphyt Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry department can develop and validate analytical methods when studying substances, including metabolite profiling and substance characterization, thereby identifying the concentration and the composition of the toxic chemical in the environment and how its biological and chemical transformations are affecting the organisms within the ecosystem.
Environmental fate studies undertaken by Stphyt regard the biodegradability and bioaccumulation of toxic substances within ecosystems and their effect on those ecosystems. The work is important as it leads to the classification of these chemicals by the Environmental Protection Agencies, which regulate the safety levels of toxic chemicals introduced into natural ecosystems.
