Ikan offers a professional tailored quality solutions in the fields of aquatic ecology and ecotoxicology. We offer a full range of environmental analytical testing services for soil and water to both the public and private sectors using standardized test methods (OECD, EPA, ISO, ASTM, UNE and DIN guidelines) for assessment of the biodegradability and toxicity of biological and organic compounds in the aquatic environment. 

These services carry out tests using Chlorella vulgaris, Daphnia magna or zebrafish model.

Zebrafish model

Our ecotoxicity assays with zebrafish are used in water quality, and help to assess the environmental impact of chemical and biological substances in water.

Zebrafish eggs and early life stage toxicity tests and Acute toxicity assay.

Daphnia Magna

Daphnia magna sp. Is commonly used as a biomarker to identify the environmental factors that affect invertebrate communities.

Daphnia magna Acute Immobilisation Test and daphnia magna reproduction test.

Chlorella vulgaris

The assays in Chlorella vulgaris determine the NOEC and detect the sublethal and lethal effects of chemical and/or biological substances. This test is widely used nowadays for research on the preliminary effects of environmental pollutants on green algae in aquatic environments.
