Additional information

Key study: An Acute Immobilisation Test in Daphnia magna was performed according to OECD Guideline 202 (GLP study). 20 Daphnids (<24 hours old, in 4 replicates) per dose were exposed to 0 (control), 0.09, 0.19, 0.43, 0.94, 2.1, 4.5 and 10 mg/L initial measured test item concentrations for 48 hours under static conditions. The EC50 (48 h) was determined to be 0.6 mg/L based on immobilization. The LOEC (48 h) and NOEC (48 h) were determined to be 0.43 mg/L and 0.19 mg/L respectively.
