Several studies have shown that the acute toxicity of chemicals to fish can be reliably predicted with the rainbow trout gill (RTgill-W1) cell line.

We offer the fish gill cell line viability test to predict the acute toxicity of chemicals and water, environmental and tissue samples (WETS) to fish according to OECD 249 or ISO 21115.

  • For the basic characterization of the RTgill-W1 cell line, please see Bols et al., 1994, J. Fish Diseases 17: 601-611.
  • For further information to the RTgill-W1 cell line test, please see fact sheet RTgill-W1 Cell Line Assay.

Determination of other parameters:

We offer gene expression analysis as an additional test parameter.
