Human exposure to many chemicals can cause serious health problems. For example, exposure to some chemicals can lead to asthma, cancers, birth defects and disability.
Exposure to chemicals can be determined by biological monitoring, or biomonitoring. Biomonitoring is the measurement of the chemical, or a product produced from that chemical, in the body of an exposed individual. The measured chemical or product is known as a Biomarker.
There is a growing demand for both occupational and environmental biomonitoring tests.
Biomark’s primary objective is to meet this need by the development of novel biomonitoirng
tests and the provision of simple to employ cost-

monitoring. Biological monitoring is the measurement of the chemical or a product produced from that chemical in the body of an exposed individual. The measured chemical or product is known as a Biomarker.
Exposure to environmental chemicals can be determined by biological monitoring. Biomark Limited specialise in the measurement of human exposure to environmental chemicals.
Biomark’s CEO Dr Lathan Ball receives an award from the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) President Mike Slatter at the 2014 Annual Conference Dinner. The award for best conference poster highlighted Biomark’s R&D. The poster was titled “The Development of a “Point of Care” Test (POCT) for Benzene Biomonitoring.” Research was undertaken in collaboration with BBI Solutions Limited and the UK HSL.
