Why test for Toxicity
With the overwhelming number of compounds that are required to be tested to assure water quality, toxicity testing offers a simpler and more rapid test for the prescreening and monitoring of water, soil, and sediment.
Use of rapid methods helps reduce the cost and time required for chemical safety evaluation. Toxicity testing generates data that is more useful for human health and ecosystem risk assessment while evaluating potential exposure overall. The testing combination of the BioLight Reagents and consumables with the BioLight Toxy allows for screening of 3600 chemical compounds simultaneously.
