Marine Ecotoxicology

High quality marine ecotoxicity tests…

Evaluation of the effects of sediment, eluates or water samples on marine species is an important part of environmental assessments. Noack offers a broad range of marine aquatic and sediment test organisms to meet the standards of many regulatory purposes.

…with a broad variety of organisms
The sea water algae Skeletonema costatum and Phaeodactylum tricornutum are tested on a regular basis in acute toxicity studies (acc. to ISO 10253, OCSPP 850.4500). Furthermore, marine ecotoxicity tests on luminescent bacteria (acc. to DIN ISO 11348) with Allivibrio fischerii are available.
Other marine tests include the acute oyster embryo toxicity test (acc. to US EPA, OPPTS 850.1055) with Crassotrea gigas, the polychaetes acute toxicity test (acc. to Ring Test Protocol, Paris Commission, 1993) with Arenicola marina, copepods acute toxicity (acc. to ISO 14669) and early life stage toxicity (acc. to ISO / DIS 16778) with Acartia tonsa and Tisbe battaiglia and marine sediment amphipoda acute toxicity tests (acc. to DIN EN ISO 16712) with Corophium volutator. Acute fish tests can also be performed acc. to OECD 203 / EC C.1, OECD 203 / OSPAR with species like turbot.

You matter.
All our studies can be conducted under GLP and are supported by a broad range of experience in scientific work on a large variety of substances and samples. 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.
