Ecotoxicological studies

Ecotoxicology is the branch of science that studies the effects of toxic chemicals
on live organisms, mainly at the population, community, ecosystem, and
biosphere levels.
Ecotoxicology integrates toxicology and ecology to evaluate the environmental risk of different substances.

Vivotecnia has a large and experienced worldwide partners community to accomplish full REACH commitment of all the four REACH regulatory annex.

 

Ecotoxicological information

  • Short-term toxicity testing on invertebrates
  • Growth inhibition study aquatic plants
  • Ready biodegradability
  • Short-term toxicity testing on fish
  • Activated sludge respiration inhibition testing
  • Degradation Abiotic
  • Hydrolysis as a function of pH
  • Fate and behavior in the environment
  • Adsorption/ desorption screening
  • Long-term toxicity testing on invertebrates
  • Fish early-life stage (FELS) toxicity test
  • Fish short-term toxicity test on embryo and sac- fry stages
  • Degradation Biotic
  • Simulation testing on ultimate degradation in surface water
  • Soil simulation testing (for substances with a high potential for adsorption to soil)
  • Sediment simulation testing (for substances with a high potential for adsorption to sediment)
  • Identification of degradation products
  • Bioaccumulation in aquatic species, preferably fish
  • Further information on adsorption/desorption depending on the results of the study required in Annex VIII
  • Effects on soil micro- organisms
  • Short-term toxicity to plants
  • Fate and behavior in the environment
  • Effects on terrestrial organisms
  • Long-term toxicity testing on invertebrates, unless already provided as part of Annex IX requirements
  • Long-term toxicity testing on plants, unless already provided as part of Annex IX requirements
  • Long-term toxicity to sediment organisms
  • Long-term or reproductive toxicity to birds
