Invertebrate testing using Daphnia magna, acute(OECD 202) and reproduction (OECD 211) including male induction where necessary.
Invertebrate testing using Chironomus riparius (OECD 218/219), also acute (OECD 235) and full life cycle tests (OECD 233).
Fish testing with a range of species as listed in OECD guidelines, including acute (OECD 203), Early life stage (OECD 210) and Bioaccumulation (OECD 305).
Tests can be designed to meet EPA guidelines instead of, or as well as, the OECD guidelines.
Tests that address particular concerns or information gaps using additional aquatic plant, invertebrate or fish species to support the development of Species Sensitivity Distributions (SDD) or the Geomean approach.
Refined Tier 1 tests, adapted to resemble pulsed exposures reflecting realistic to worst case scenarios.
Expertise in testing to assess the potential for endocrine disruption in fish, e.g. biomarkers and/ or reproduction tests (OECD 229/230) and the sexual development test (OECD 234), should this be a consideration in your Environmental Risk Assessment.
Coming Soon - Tier 3 Environmental Risk Assessment using Model Ecosystems (Mesocosms).
Access to flexible flow-through ditch/stream/pond mesocosm facilities designed with the ability to simulate realistic to worst case pulsed exposures of aquatic communities.
Assessments can include the Ecological Threshold and Ecological Recovery Options.
