BioassayAlpha Analytical Laboratories performs bioassay according to 40 CFR 136, currently the “Methods for Measuring the Acute Toxicity of Effluents and Receiving Waters to Freshwater and Marine Organisms,” 5th Edition (EAP-821-R-02-012).  This acute toxicity of effluent limits will be evaluated by measuring survival of rainbow trout species exposed to 96-hour static renewal bioassays.   We also offer LC-50 Polsini & Miller methodology to determine if solid or aqueous matrices should be characterized as hazardous material.  The fathead minnow species are used in both screening and definitive applications.
