|ICS Code (Examination of biological properties of water):||13.060.70|
This International Standard specifies a method for the determination of the lethal effects of toxicants to Brachionus calyciflorus after 24 h exposure. The method is applicable to:
a) chemical substances which are soluble, or which can be maintained as a stable suspension of dispersions under the conditions of the test;
b) industrial or sewage effluents, treated or untreated, if appropriate after decantation, filtration or centrifugation;
