Freshwater & Marine Ecotoxicology

We are able to offer a comprehensive suite of Freshwater and Marine Ecotoxicology studies, covering a wide range of test species. The purpose of ecotoxicology testing is to predict the effects of pollution, so that the most efficient and effective actions can be identified to prevent or remediate any detrimental effects.

Our capabilities

Our multidisciplinary team of scientists have substantial experience across multiple vertebrate and invertebrate species and in a variety of test systems, (static, flow through, pulsed dose), in marine and freshwater environments). The team comprises proven experts in testing routine and problematic (hydrolytically unstable, highly sorptive, volatile, low solubility) materials and regularly develop novel methodologies, exposure systems and culture techniques to support bespoke testing strategies. We operate in modern GLP-compliant facilities striving to provide the highest quality service possible.
