2018-12-05 Mikroplaster testas i nyinvigt labb. Mikroplaster i havet har visat sig kunna exponera djur och växter för farliga kemikalier. Som en av pionjärerna på området har RISE IVF mätt mikroplaster i olika uppdrag och kunnat ge ett välkommet bidrag i det internationella arbetet med standardisering av en mätmetod. Med det nya tvättlabbet ser vi fram emot att kunna utöka vårt erbjudande med att mäta mikroplaster.​
