Small enough to care and big enough to deliver

Ecotoxicological studies of a substance are of great importance, since effects on organisms in different environmental compartments can be measured and evaluated. We offer in our laboratory studies of aquatic and terrestrial ecotoxicology. This can be performed as acute, subacute or reproductive studies.

As aquatic monitor organisms bacteria, algae, daphnia or fish can be used. Depending on the test method and stability of the test item the aquatic studies are performed static, semi-static or as flow through study.

Furthermore we perform bioassays with earthworms (Eisenia andrei), blackworms (Lumbriculus variegatus) or chironomids (Chironomus riparus) as well as studies on the biotransformation (C and N transformation) in the test system soil.

We will advise you in the selection of an appropriate test method for your substance and offer you the complete studies with the necessary analysis! Even for not so easy substances such as nanomaterials we offer the appropriate analytical methods.
