Toxicology laboratories can provide many tools useful for understanding the health impact of endocrine disrupters. They can offer exposure measurement (e.g., identification and quantification of the main pollutants), but can also determine biological impacts, that is, measure effects. These determinations can be performed on water, air or soil, on animals used as sentinels, and also on humans.
