Lymnaea Stagnalis Reproduction Test

Lymnaea stagnalis, commonly referred to as the great pond snail, is a freshwater mollusk commonly found in Europe and other parts of the world. It is widely used in aquatic ecotoxicology studies to evaluate the reproductive effects of pollutants and toxic substances. The L. stagnalis reproduction test is to assess the effects of long-term exposure to chemicals on the reproduction and survival of the hermaphroditic freshwater snail L. stagnalis (large pond snail). Reproductive adults of L. stagnalis are exposed to a range of concentrations of the test chemicals and monitored for 28 days for survival and reproduction (number of eggs laid).

  • Determining the toxicity of chemicals on the reproduction of L. stagnalis.
  • Identifying the no-observed-effect-concentration (NOEC) and low-observed-effect-concentration (LOEC) for the tested substances.
  • L. stagnalis culture
  • Data analysis

Test Organism

L. stagnalis is a very common freshwater snail found in the northern hemisphere. Hermaphrodites can self-fertilize, but cross-fertilization is common.

Endpoints of L. stagnalis Reproduction Test

  • The primary endpoint is the cumulative number of eggs laid per snail during the 28-day exposure period.
  • Snail growth and the number of eggs laid per snail can be used as additional testing endpoints.
  • Toxic effects of test chemicals are expressed as X percent effect concentrations (ECx).
  • Alternatively, the toxic effect of a test chemical can be expressed as a NOEC and a LOEC.
