Environmental Fate and Aquatic Toxicology

Ecotoxicology testing evaluates the direct impact a chemical substance has on living organisms. Many agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the European Union (EU), and REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals), regulate chemicals in the market, and require ecotoxicological data on a substance to approve its use or distribution.

When building and development takes place, there is an increased chance that the environment will be exposed to chemicals and material waste. Understanding how aquatic organisms are affected by certain chemicals, allows developers to choose options that decrease the risk of harming the surrounding environment and improve safety. Situ Biosciences offers a variety of aquatic toxicology tests including assessments for chemical impact on aquatic invertebrates, fish, and aquatic plants. 

Ecotoxicology also involves environmental fate testing to analyze how a substance will react in the environment once in contact with water or soil. Testing generally measures how a material transforms in water, soil, and other environmental conditions. It can also evaluate the bioaccumulation potential that a substance has in biota like fish and certain species of worms.
