Daphnia Magna Reproduction Test

Daphnia Magna Reproduction Test

Daphnia magna, commonly referred to as water flea, is a freshwater invertebrate belonging to the Cladocera order. Daphnia is an essential herbivore that feeds on phytoplankton and, thus, plays a crucial part in risk assessments associated with a variety of substances, ranging from plant protection products, industrial chemicals, and fungicides to medicinal products for human and veterinary usage. It has long been employed as a keystone organism for examinations of aquatic ecotoxicity. Recently, D. magna is emerging as a highly sensitive prototype for environmental metabolomics and biomonitoring procedures. Typically conducted endpoints, such as median lethality and reproductive assays, are ordinarily not performed at environmentally relevant concentrations.

CD BioSciences is proud to present the D. magna reproduction assay, a revolutionary method for evaluating the effects of chemicals on the reproduction of daphnia magna, a widely used aquatic organism. We offer unparalleled expertise, a comprehensive scope of services, and a commitment to providing our clients with the highest quality testing services.

Our Services

CD BioSciences is dedicated to providing advanced and reliable methods for evaluating chemical substances' impact on D. magna reproduction. We guarantee that all our D. magna reproduction tests follow precise, proven testing methods endorsed by the OECD guidelines.

  • D. magna Reproduction Test
  • The scientists of CD BioSciences designed the test to assess the reproductive toxicity of chemical substances, it determines the number of viable offspring produced by D. magna exposed to varying concentrations of the test item.
  • Chronic D. magna Reproduction Test
    This extended test assesses the same effects as the standard test but over a more extended exposure period, resulting in a more comprehensive evaluation of the impact of the test item.
  • Acute Lethality Test using D. magna
    CD BioSciences offers the service to determine the frequency of acute lethality of test chemicals used in daphnia reproduction tests.
  • Toxicity Identification Evaluation (TIE)
    The scientists of CD BioSciences Combined chemical analyses of water samples with acute and chronic toxicity tests of ambient water samples to identify the causative agents of toxicity in aquatic environments.
