Ecotoxicology Studies

Ecotoxicology studies are performed to assess the impact of the contamination of compounds on various ecosystems. The studies are conducted by following the Principles of Good laboratory Practices. The studies are conducted in accordance with the standard operating procedures of test facility and mutually agreed study plans and amendments. Instruments required in the experiments are well equipped and procured from the authenticated vendors having ISO/NABL certification. Internal as well as external calibrations are also performed at regular intervals. The ecotoxicology studies are supported by the in-house Method Validation prior performing the test. 000+ ecotoxicology studies were performed and submitted to regulatory authorities.
The aquatic testing at our facility includes the following studies:

OECD 201 - Freshwater Alga and Cyanobacteria, Growth Inhibition Test

The ecotoxicology professionals at ESSEM Compliance Solutions Private Limited surrounds with a broad range of non-clinical studies with freshwater fish, zooplankton and algae.

Alga, Growth Inhibition Tests are performed as per the OECD 201 guideline to assess the effect of test item on freshwater algae (Psuedokirchneriella subcapitata) for a period of 72 hours. It refers to the determination of 50% inhibition of growth rate expressed as the logarithmic increase in biomass (average specific growth rate) during the exposure period denoted as ErCx.

Alga, Growth Inhibition studies are assisted by the Analytical Chemistry department of ESSEM Compliance Solutions Private Limited for method development and validation, characterization of test item, homogeneity, stability and dose concentration verification in test media as per the regulatory requirements.

OECD 202 - Daphnia sp. Acute Immobilization Test

OECD 203 - Fish, Acute Toxicity Test

OECD 210 - Fish, Early - Life Stages Toxicity Test

OECD 211 - Daphnia Magna Reproduction Test
