Test Systems

The Ecotox Centre offers investigations with a comprehensive suite of bioassays for the ecotoxicological evaluation of environmental samples. The used bioassays were chosen with the objective of attaining reliable and scientifically well-founded results at reasonable expense for equipment and cost. The assays cover various toxicological mechanisms of action, build upon each other and can simply be exchanged or supplemented with further assays. Additional assays may be adopted for a more complex ecotoxicological evaluation and are then assigned to external laboratories by the Ecotox Center.

Soil Test Systems

Soil Test Systems
To assess the toxicity of soil samples, their effect on soil organisms is investigated. The bioassays are done in the Lausanne lab.

Sediment Test Systems

Sediment Test Systems
Sediment ecotoxicity is determined using various sediment organisms. These assays are done as well at the Lausanne lab.
