Aquatic Ecotoxicology

Understanding the influence of chemicals within the environment is a complex topic. It becomes more and more important to provide a refined and detailed risk assessment towards predicting potential future risks for ecosystems. We can help you to understand how to incorporate and adapt test systems to the totality of surrounding conditions.

To understand the influence of chemicals in the environment is a complex topic. It becomes more and more important to provide a refined and detailed risk assessment to predict potential risk for ecosystems.

Hence, early eco-toxicological screening is essential to minimize environmental risk and we provide the following services to address these challenges:

  • Screening studies (be prepared at an early stage of development and/or avoid performing expensive tasks that are not needed)
  • Special Studies (with a focus on species sensitive distribution (SSD) studies, pulse-dose scenarios, combined terrestrial and aquatic studies and microcosm studies including SSD approaches (e.g. addition of specific indicator species without the presence of predators)
  • Setup studies (audit of laboratories); We know most systems because they were established by us. Hence, we are able to help with these studies and we have developed advanced skills that allow us to find the right questions and answers.
