Description of key information

The 96-hour NOEC and the 96-hour LCO of FAT 40825/A to zebra fish were determined to be at least 100 mg/L. The 96-hour LOEC (lowest concentration with toxic effects), the 96-hour LC50 and the 96-hour LC100 were clearly higher than 100 mg/L, due to the absence of toxicity of FAT 40825/A at the tested concentration.

Additional information

The acute toxicity of the test item FAT 40825/A to zebra fish {Brachydanio rerio) was determined in a 96-hour static test according to the OECD Guideline for Testing of Chemicals No. 203, (1992). A limit test was performed in accordance with the guidelines to demonstrate that the test item has no toxic effect on the test organisms at the nominal concentration of 100 mg/L. Thus the only concentration tested was nominal 100 mg/L and a control.

The analytically determined concentration of the test item FAT 40825/A in the test medium was 102 % of the nominal value throughout the test period of 96 hours. The test item FAT 40825/A was stable under the conditions of the test during the test period of 96 hours. Therefore, all reported biological results are related to the nominal concentration of the test item.

In the control and at the test concentration of 100 mg/L no mortality or other visible abnormalities were determined at the test fish during the test period of 96 hours. Therefore, the 96-hour NOEC (highest concentration tested without toxic effects after the exposure period of 96 hours), and the 96-hour LCO of FAT 40825/A to zebra fish were determined to be at least 100 mg/L. The 96-hour LOEC (lowest concentration with toxic effects), the 96-hour LC50 and the 96-hour LC100 were clearly higher than 100 mg/L, due to the absence of toxicity of FAT 40825/A at the tested concentration.
