Non-standard laboratory tests

We have experience in addressing special questions in environmental risk assessment with acute and chronic laboratory tests with non-standard species and/or non-standard design.

Possible test species are for example:

 

Insects:

  • Mayflies (e.g. Cloeon dipterum)
  • Caddiesflies (e.g. Hydropsyche incognita, Lasiocephala basalis, Rhyacophila spp.)
  • Phantom midges (e.g. Chaoborus obscuripes, Chaoborus crystallinus
  • Water bugs (e.g. Notonecta glauca)

 

Crustacea:

  • Isopods (e.g. Asellus aquaticus)
  • Amphipods (e.g. Gammarus pulex, Gammarus roeselii, Crangonyx pseudogracillis)
  • Cladocera (e.g. Daphnia longispina, Daphnia pulex, Simocephalus sp.)

 

Mollusca:

  • Gastropoda (e.g. Potamopyrgus antipodarum, Lymnea stagnalis)

 

Oligochaeta:

  • Naididae

 

Further freshwater species are available on request.
