RANGE-FINDING TEST

I n the range finding no significant immobility of daphnia was seen at all concentrations tested. However, the mobility of all daphnia exposed to 1000 mg/l had decreased i n comparison with the controls.

FINAL STUDY: IMMOBILITY

After 48 hours o f exposure no significant immobility of daphnia was seen at all concentrations tested.

FINAL STUDY: EXPERIMENTAL CONDITIONS

The pH varied from 6.3 to 8.4.

Oxygen concentration in the test media was found to be > 5 mg/l for a1l measurements.

The temperature of the test medium measured i n the blank control varied from l 9 to 20.5 ° C.

FINAL STUDY: ACCEPTABILITY OF THE TEST

In the controls not more than 10% o f the daphnia became immobilized or

trapped at the surface of the water .

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Validity criteria fulfilled:
yes
Conclusions:
Under the conditions o f the present study . DC 5067 appeared to be nontoxic to Daphnia magna, i . e . the 4 8 h-EC50 w ith respect t o mobiiity was
> nominally 1000 mg/l .
Executive summary:

Daphnia were exposed for a maximum of 48 hours to a concentration range of 100 to 1000 mg/l forming a geometric progression with a factor of 1.8. The test was performed in duplicate with 10 daphnia per vessel. After 48 hours of exposure no significant immobility of daphnia was seen at a11 concentrations tested.

Under conditions of the present sutdy, DC 5067 appeared to be non-toxic to Daphnia magna, i . e . , the 48h-EC50 with respect to mobility was > nominally 1000 mg/l .
