Laboratori de Toxicologia
Services
Equipped for the application of analytical techniques of organic halides allowing the most significative determination in the study on the effects of pollutants in the aquatic medium; area for bioassays of acute and chronic toxicity with live culture in the state of latent life and for "in-vitro" cellular studies.

Toxicology
Ecotoxicological studies and assays with aquatic organisms (in vivo/in vitro). Studies of bioaccumulation of metal, dyes, halogenated compounds, etc. Determination of adsorbable halogenated organic compounds (AOX).Determination of pesticides by immunoassay techniques. Evaluation of physiological and histological effects in fishes. Studies of "in-vitro" toxicity with cellular lines of fishes. Development of new methods for toxicological evaluation.
