The Laboratory of Industrial Toxicology deals with investigations into toxic properties of adverse substances, with the aim to validate hygienic standards for occupational exposure to these substances (MPC).

Recently, 13 experimentally proved standards for safety of toxic substances have been developed and adopted. Assessment of the degree of hazard of industrial wastes that originate from chemical destruction of toxic agents by different procedures has been carried out. Toxicological evaluations of occupational hazards, produced by the Laboratory, have been used by the Russian Governmental to issue a number of decrees dealing with safety provision of chemical weapons destruction processes.

The Laboratory staff is presented by highly skilled experts having large research experience.

The first priority would be given to research topics that can significantly contribute to assessing the extent of hazard arising from combined exposure to adverse substances.
