Industrial and Environmental Biomonitoring

Our industrial and environmental biomonitoring platform aims to reduce the time between sampling and actionable results from days or weeks to just hours, through the use of in-house lateral flow testing and analysis. Laboratory based researchers can also take advantage of our biomonitoring ELISA kits, where basic assay equipment is present.

Background and Importance

The importance of industrial and environmental biomonitoring for human health underscores the pressing need for more affordable and accessible testing methods. Currently, biomonitoring serves as a critical tool for understanding the health risks associated with industrial activities. However, its full potential can only be realised if testing becomes cheaper, faster and simpler to deploy.

In most industrial biomonitoring cases, samples must be sent off to a central laboratory where expensive HPLC-based assays are performed. This process of arranging the shipment of samples, central laboratories then scheduling and performing testing and finally delivering results can be very time consuming. The faster that results are received, the more relevant they are to the employees’ situations and the consequent safety of the environments in which they operate.

Our testing platform allows industries to take control of their testing by bringing it in-house. This is achieved by simple to use lateral flow testing that can act as a pre-screen and produce actionable results within one hour.

Lateral flow

Our lateral flows tests, paired with our mobile based app, allows biomonitoring to be performed in any environment with no requirements for extra laboratory equipment or training. Using a pre-determined cut-off value, the test can report whether a sample is likely to be above or below that cut-off. The test is designed to act as a pre-screen, limiting the number of samples needing to be sent to central laboratories to only those potentially elevated samples that require further analysis. This reduces the cost of central laboratory testing and allows for immediate actionable results.


Our ELISA kits are designed for laboratory environments equipped with essential instrumentation. These kits provide a highly efficient solution for researchers, enabling them to accurately quantify a diverse range of samples simultaneously within a few hours, eliminating the need to send them to central laboratories for costly HPLC-based testing.

New Product


Combustion Industries (Steel and Power)

Pyrene is a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) commonly formed during the incomplete combustion of organic matter. The urinary metabolite of pyrene is 1-hydroxypyrene glucuronide (HOP-G). HOP-G is therefore an important biomarker for human exposure to airborne PAH pollutants. ELISA kits and Lateral Flow assays for pyrene exposure are now available, contact us for more information.

Coming soon



Benzene is an organic compound commonly found in coal and petroleum products and is used in the manufacture of many other products. The urinary metabolite of Benzene is s-phenylmercapturic acid (S-PMA). S-PMA is a useful biomarker for human exposure to benzene in petrochemical and manufacturing industries. We anticipate ELISA and lateral flow products will be available late 2024, register interest to keep updated.


Polyurethane Coating and Spraying

Isocyanates are compounds containing the isocyanate group (-NCO) and are the raw materials that make up all polyurethane products such as polyurethane foams and paints. Isocyanates are one of the leading causes of occupational asthma in the UK therefore it is important to monitor human exposure. The main compounds monitored are Methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) and Toluene diisocyanate (TDI) and their respective urinary metabolites acetyl methylene diamine (AcMDA) and acetyl toluene diamine (AcTDA). We anticipate that ELISAs and lateral flow products for AcMDA and AcTDA will be available in 2025, register interest to keep updated.
