Fish Life Cycle Toxicity Test

Fish life cycle toxicity test is an essential aspect of ecotoxicology testing. It evaluates the long-term effects of chemicals on different life stages of fish, including embryonic and larval stages. The test is also useful in assessing the effects of certain substances on reproductive performance, growth, and survival rates of fish species. In a fish life cycle toxicity test, fish are exposed to chemicals from one stage of their life cycle to at least the same stage of the next generation. It is used to detect adverse effects on development, growth or reproduction throughout the life cycle. For testing of endocrine disruptors, further parameters responsive to the endocrine mode of action can be added. CD BioSciences provides a comprehensive range of services in fish life cycle toxicity testing that meets the latest regulatory guidelines for pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and other industrial products.
