Aquatic Invertebrate Ecotoxicity

Assessment of product effects on aquatic invertebrates…

For the assessment of substance-induced effects on water wildlife, invertebrate testing is a prerequisite for almost all registration dossiers in legislations like REACH or the Pesticide Act. The studies range from short-term acute to long-term reproduction tests. We are confident to conduct the best GLP invertebrate study for your requirements.
We are experienced in handling volatile and instable substances in aquatic media. Using the required test species from our in-house breeding we guarantee high quality and reliable testing for your specific needs.

…from screening to higher tier studies
Noack offers the whole range of aquatic studies with Daphnia magna, Hyalella azteca and Ceriodaphnia dubia under GLP. Our portfolio contains both acute and reproduction tests, such as crustacean acute toxicity (acc. to OECD 202, OPPTS 850.1020), crustacean reproduction toxicity (acc. to OECD 211, EPA/600/R-99/64) and chronic survival and reproduction tests with Ceriodaphnia dubia (acc. to US EPA 1002.0).
Additionally, marine sediment studies with Corophium volutator and copepods acute toxicity (acc. to ISO 14669) and early life stage toxicity (acc. to ISO / DIS 16778) with Acartia tonsa and Tisbe battaiglia are available. For more details about our marine testing portfolio, please refer to the Marine Ecotoxicity section.

… with high quality organisms
Our in-house breeding guarantees close monitoring and healthy organisms for reliable testing. Monthly reference tests guideline guarantee the conformity of the organism responses.

…including up-to-date analytical services
We offer in-house state-of-the-art highly sensitive accompanying chemical analytics using GC-MS, LC-MS/MS or LC-QTOF. With more than 30 years of experience, we can analyze a wide range of substances and degradation products. All chemical methods are fully validated following the most recent guidelines and specifications of regulatory authorities (SANCO/3029/99 rev. 4, SANCO/3030/99 rev. 4).

You matter.
All our studies are conducted under GLP and supported by a broad range of experience in scientific work on a large variety of substances such as chemicals, plant protection products or fragrances and flavours. We strive for complete transparency and a close communication during the course of your studies. Monthly status updates, guaranteed testing slots and real-time updates are only some examples of our customer service.
