Bioassay

Biogroup has developed a wide variety of analytical techniques in the field of biology among which include the Test Toxicity and Microbiological Analysis.

Toxicity Test

Toxicity tests, commonly called “Bioassays” measure toxic or adverse effects of samples of a particular organism. Toxicity tests are laboratory experiments used to assess the biological impacts on the environment by direct exposure of aquatic organisms to water or sediment in question.


Biogroup researchers conducted a series of test samples toxicity:

Water and wastewater
Surface and groundwater.
Sediments of rivers, streams, lakes and oceans.
Ecological Risk Assessment at Contaminated Sites.
Toxicity test. Chronic and acute.
Invertebrates. Cladocera (Ceriodaphnia dubia) survival and reproduction.
Cladocera (Daphnia magna) survival, growth, and reproduction.
Cladocera (Daphnia pulex) survival.
Algae – Green microalgae (Selenastrum carpicornutum) growth.
Amphipod. Aztec Hyalella, survival in sediments.
Plant (Lactuca sativa) (Lycopersicon esculentum) (Cucumis sativus) (Glycine max) (Brassica oleracea) (Avena sativa) (Lolium perenne) (Allium cepa) (Daucus carota) (Zea mays), Germination and test of root elongation .


Ames test

It is a bioassay to assess the mutagenic potential of chemical compounds. As Cancer is often linked to DNA damage, the test also serves as a quick way to estimate the carcinogenic potential of a test compound as the standard tests for carcinogenicity done on rodents take years to complete and are expensive to make .
