AquaTox Research offers freshwater and saltwater effluent and stormwater aquatic toxicity testing (biomonitoring) services in addition to specialized toxicity testing (Microtox) and information-based services highlighted elsewhere in this website. Tests are typically conducted with larval fathead (Pimephales promelas) or sheepshead (Cyprinodon variegatus) minnows and invertebrates such as the freshwater daphnids Ceriodaphnia dubia and Daphnia magna and the saltwater mysid, Americamysis bahia (previously known as Mysidopsis bahia). ARI routinely conducts acute and chronic tests with these species and maintains an active reference testing program to demonstrate quality assurance. ARI staff possess more than 40 years of cumulative experience in conducting toxicity tests with these organisms.
