Link to the exhibition for the chemical industry of the future

From Fira Barcelona will hold the most important appointment of applied chemistry in Europe during 2011. Expoquimia, concentrated more than 1100 direct exhibitors and 55.000 of professional visitors. Lab&Bio, as a sector of Expoquimia, is once again shining a spotlight on the companies that specialise in biotechnology and analytical instrumentation, two disciplines that are experiencing unprecedented growth. This dedicated area is where science, knowledge and business come together in support of one of the fastest-growing markets. Innovation and science at the service of industry.
In November 2011 (14-18th) thanks to all of you, we will transform Barcelona in the European Scientific Capital in south europe.


Professor Bo Holmstedt was a prominent toxicologist both nationally and internationally, well-known in the toxicology community for his outstanding research, engagement in education, contributions to toxicological organisations and role as a leading authority in toxicological evaluation. He was born 1918 in the southern part of Sweden, and studied medicine at the Karolinska Institute.  In 1952, he graduated with a MD PhD in pharmacology, and became a full professor in toxicology at the Karolinska Institute in 1964.

To honour Professor Bo Holmstedt, the BHMF, in collaboration with EUROTOX, has established the Bo Holmstedt Memorial Lecture to be presented to an outstanding European Toxicologist at the EUROTOX Annual Congress meeting. The foundation is also supporting the Paracelcus symposium at the animal meeting. Bo Holmstedt's great interest in the teaching of toxicology and supported research in developing countries, a travelling lecture fellowship has also been established to allow a toxicologist from a developing country to spent some time in a European laboratory or regulatory agency.

Moulin de Verville, 95760 VALMONDOIS, France

PREVOR is a laboratory which specialises in the development of emergency treatment of chemical accidents. It is in this capacity that we have been working, since 1958, with the industrial sector in collaboration with the emergency departments.

For more than 40 years, we have investigated chemistry, biology and human physiology to understand the essence of toxicology, man-chemical product interactions and their acute and chronic consequences. Thanks to the work realised in cooperation with academics from Europe and the United-States, we have acquired for more than 40 years a culture of chemical products and their potentials.

Today, based on this knowledge we are able to go beyond the limits of non-optimal solutions in order to increase the safety and the effectiveness of the victim’s treatment and consequently avoid complications.
Now, we are the daily partners of the manufacturers, armies and governments to improve the chemical safety. We are established in Europe, United-States, Asia and Africa. From day to day, we offer the necessary means to ensure the safety of populations on a professional plan as well as on a civil plan within the scope of governmental programmes for security

Xenometrix offers the Ames MPF  assay kits for all strains required by the "OECD Guideline 471: TA98, TA100, TA1535, TA1537, E. coli WP2 uvrA, E. coli WP2 [pKM101]
The Ames MPF Kits kit include media, ampicillin, rat liver S9 (optional) and positive controls (optional). The assays are based on the fluctuation and pre-incubation method cited in the OECD Guideline 471, but use liquid media in microplates and have a colorimetric read-out.

Xenometrix also offers cytotoxicity kits with multiple endpoints for one cellular sample. Such an approach enhances the probability of identifying toxic compounds, uses less test compounds and removes inter-assay variability.
