About

TiPED has been created by a team of scientists and experts in a wide range of fields. Our goal was to lay out the necessary tools that a chemist would need to measure potential EDC activity. The idea and content of TiPED™ came from a series of meetings organized by Advancing Green Chemistry and Environmental Health Sciences.
