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.

  • 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.
