Endocrine disrupting compounds (EDC) have been defined as exogenous substances that alter functions of the endocrine system and consequently cause adverse health effects in an intact organism, or its progeny, or (sub)populations. To avoid human health and environmental consequences of EDC, these compounds have to be removed from effluents to reach “no effect” concentrations. The most active EDC are steroid compounds, bisphenol A and phthalate esters. Proteus has developed enzymes able to degrade these compounds in aqueous effluents.

Lab samples are available. Commercial scale on demand.
