Better detecting foodborne toxins of marine origin

Each year, worldwide, tens of thousands of people get food poisoning from seafood products. Hélène Martin-Yken is a scientist in INRA's Joint Research Unit for the Engineering of Biological Systems and Processes (LISBP). She and her team performed a study aimed at improving tools for detecting foodborne toxins of marine origin, which are the primary cause of seafood-related food poisoning. The results were published in Environmental Research.
