Ecotoxicology and biodegradation

Citoxlab – Your one-stop CRO for risk assessment

Citoxlab offers a wide range of laboratory based ecotoxicology and biodegradation studies to meet current ecological and nature preservation concerns and the needs of industries, including chemical, plant protection and biocide sectors. We have specialized expertise in complex substances such as metals, UVCBs and polymers.

The design of each study, including media preparation and analytical services, is tailored to ensure your compound registration program meets regulatory requirements for aquatic and terrestrial environmental risk assessment.

You are welcome to contact us for advice on the best package of studies for investigating your compounds (studies in red are subcontracted, and managed by Citoxlab within global one-stop packages).
