It was the first time HCS Pharma participate at 35th symposium of the French society of genetic toxicology (SFTG) as a sponsor. The implication of the SFTG in the study and assessment of environmental genotoxic agents motive us to be a sponsor of this 35th event.

This year, topic focused on the trans generational genotoxic and epigenetic effects of environmental compounds. Two high level plenary session, presented by Francelyne Marano and Giacomo Cavalli from CNRS, has introduced clearly the different implications of trans generational genotoxicity and epigenetic effects. The role of germinal cells was clearly established in exposition to genotoxic compounds and we were pleased to see clinicians and lab scientists exchanged about this topic.

We also presented our last assay on micronucleus and gamma H2AX detection to the SFTG community. Thanks to the positive feedback received after the presentation, we are confident in the quality and robusteness of our automated genotoxicity assays.
