Environment

Pesticides encompass a wide range of compounds such as insecticides, fungicides, herbicides, rodenticides, and many others. Over a billion pounds of pesticides are used in the U.S. each year to control pests in agriculture, industry as well as home and garden uses. Modern synthetic pesticides contributed greatly towards increased food production, allowing food supplies to keep pace with an ever increasing world population. Pesticides also help reduce insect-transmitted diseases like West Nile and Zika virus, among many others. Despite their benefits, pesticides are harmful to both humans and the environment and can remain in the environment for years!

ANP Health’s NIDS® ACE Professional & Rapid tests offer an attractive solution for testing and mitigating the risk of pesticide contamination in the environment by combining a sensitive and easy to use format, yet extremely affordable and fast when compared to other methods that cost thousands of dollars and typically take weeks to receive the results.
