  • The ecotoxicity of antibiotics differed significantly depending on the test organism and testing conditions. (nel.edu)
  • Coefficients of variation for intralaboratory and interlaboratory variability for the average of the 3 fluorescent cell viability measurements were 15.5% and 30.8%, respectively, which is comparable to other fish-derived, small-scale bioassays. (muni.cz)
  • This is the test you fail if fish are put into the water and over 50% of them die. (greenpeace.org)
  • During the experiment, the fish were kept in a Plexiglas respiratory-metabolism chamber, which was filled with Lake Superior water. (wikipedia.org)

  • The Dissolved oxygen (DO2), pH and temperature values of the water were within tolerable limits for fish culture. (ispub.com)
  • Another set of fish was exposed to 0.0625 μg sodium arsenite, a known clastogen, which was used as the positive control, while another set of catfish exposed to the culture water alone was the negative control. (scirp.org)
  • Artificial sediments with simple formulations were used to assess the toxicity of Cr to C. xanthus , D. rerio and P. reticulata . (scielo.br)
  • Periodic, multi-matrix screening is recommended to track contaminant trends impacted by changes to flammability standards and manufacturing practices, with a particular focus on contaminants like TDCPP and TPhP that were found at levels comparable to thresholds for aquatic toxicity. (sfei.org)
  • The results were then discussed in a workshop, together with alternative ways of reducing fish in case range-finding studies are required. (forschung3r.ch)
  • Other alternatives include the use of humans for skin irritancy tests and donated human blood for pyrogenicity studies. (wikipedia.org)
  • Human skin equivalent tests can be used to replace animal-based corrosive and irritative studies. (wikipedia.org)
  • The application of such a model by the agrochemical industry could ultimately lead to a decrease in the number of fish acute toxicity studies that are carried out to meet regulatory requirements, potentially saving approximately 1,800 fish annually across Europe. (nc3rs.org.uk)
