Liverpool Insect Testing Establishment (LITE) is a world class insecticide testing laboratory based in Liverpool funded by IVCC. It conducts routine insecticide testing using a range of different bioassays. Scientists have access to a number of resistant mosquito colonies, an asset that sets LITE apart from laboratories working in similar areas.
LITE’s goal is to be a world leader in providing quality services that help improve the health of millions of people across the globe, by providing protection against malaria and other vector-borne diseases.
Insecticide resistance is one of the biggest threats to malaria control and, by working with agrochemical company partners to evaluate novel insecticides, we are aiding in the battle to manage insecticide resistance and to counteract the spread of infection.
The mission of LITE is to be a reputable, flexible, quality and customer service driven testing facility for insect control products, that delivers an independent and comprehensive service.
