Type:

Sampling and analysis

Analytical monitoring:

Remarks:
LC-TOF/MS

Test organisms

Test organisms (species):
Daphnia magna
Details on test organisms:
Daphnia magna were aged of < 24 hours old.
They were taken from healthy laboratory cultures, which were hatched from dormant ephippia supplied by MicroBio Tests Inc.

Study design

Test type:
static
Water media type:
other: Elendt M4 medium
Limit test:
yes
Total exposure duration:
48 h
Post exposure observation period:
After 24 and 48 hours, the Daphnia magna in each test vessel were observed for evidence of immobility. The observations differentiated between mobile and immobile daphnids. An individual was considered immobile if, when the contents of the test vessel were briefly agitated, it did not swim during a 15-second period of observation. In addition, Daphnia magna submerged in the body of the test media and those that were held at the surface of the test media were also recorded.

Conc. based on:

Basis for effect:
mobility
Details on results:
Given that the mean measured concentration was within 80% of the nominal concentration, it was considered justifiable to base the results on nominal concentrations as recommended in the OECD 202 guideline.
Based on nominal concentrations, the 48-h EC50 value was determined to be > 10 mg/L. The corresponding NOEC was considered to be 10 mg/L.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Validity criteria fulfilled:
yes
Conclusions:
The validity criteria for control immobility (=< 10%) and dissolved oxygen (>= 3 mg/L) were both satisfied. The test is therefore considered valid.
Based on nominal concentrations, the 48-h EC50 value was determined to be > 10 mg/L. The corresponding NOEC and LOEC were considered to be 10 mg/L and > 10 mg/L respectively.
