Bibliographic Database

Internal Contamination Database

These 2 databases are made of:

  1. a data database: BiblioIdeas.mdb or InternalContData.mdb accessible with Microsoft® Access 2003.
  2. a program database labelled xxxProg2006.mdb in Microsoft® Access 2003 which allows you to visualise information contained in the previous databases. Program databases exist in earlier version of Microsoft® Access but are in principle not any more maintained.

If you have contamination cases which are not in the Internal Contamination database, we are very interested in these cases.
Please contact Anne Laure Lebacq at
And we will introduce these cases into the database
