Water-sediment Glyceria Maxima Toxicity Test

Water-sediment Glyceria Maxima Toxicity Test

Glyceria maxima is usually found in open wetlands such as swamps, grasslands, bushes and coastlines. Sediment toxicity tests play an important role in the prospective risk assessment of organic chemicals. Water-sediment G. maxima toxicity test is a specially crafted method of assessing the impact that chemical compounds can have on G. maxima. When situated in static water bodies, G. maxima may suffer the effects of prolonged exposure to chemicals or repeated exposures.

While G. maxima testing is relatively new, and current methods for sediment toxicity testing are fragmented and varied, CD BioSciences has extensive research and experience with this species. Harmonization of our more representative species, endpoint selection, dose metrics, and exposure assessment methods enable the determination of toxicological thresholds for various chemicals found in aqueous systems.

Our Services

At CD BioSciences, we offer G. maxima toxicity testing services in aqueous sediments to facilitate project advancement. Clients will benefit from our user-friendly custom toxicity testing services that are sensitive and accurate and facilitate the timely delivery of test results. The toxicity test includes the following services:

  • Evaluating the sensitivity of G. maxima to chemically mediated toxicity.
  • Analysis of toxicological data for accurate interpretation and informed decision-making.
  • Customized testing protocols tailored to meet specific client requirements.

Test Organisms

G. maxima grows as an emerging monocot. These plants are not easy to grow, but we manage to do it in our laboratory, so we are not dependent on deliveries from commercial breeders. Our plants are parasite free and we are confident they are completely untreated.

Endpoints of Our Toxicity Test

The endpoints of the study are increases in shoot height (including new growth) and fresh and dry weight. Based on these parameters, NOEC, LOEC, and EC50 (EC20, EC10) of production and growth rate can be calculated.

Advantages of Our Toxicity Test

  • It utilizes a highly sensitive and scientifically advanced sediment-free test method. Its accuracy in the detection of the most minute toxic effects ensures that a low-level toxicity of chemical substances does not evade detection.
  • It is a cost-efficient method, thereby guaranteeing affordability and accessibility to clients.
  • It is user-friendly, which ensures fast, precise, and reliable results from a streamlined testing protocol.
  • Clients will benefit from our customized testing protocols based on their specific requirements, which maximizes testing sensitivity and efficiency.
