Tests conducted using Microbes from an activated sludge system provide important indications of whether chemicals will likely be degraded in a biological treatment system and/or whether they will impair the resident microbial population.
At AquaTox, we have extensive experience in conducting aerobic and anaerobic biodegradability and microbial respiration tests and have spent considerable time in the refinement of standard test methods and development of novel microbial testing techniques. We conduct these tests under GLP and non-GLP conditions depending upon the needs of the client. These tests can be used for regulatory submissions or in support of product stewardship (e.g., Environmental Choice Program (“EcoLogo”), Green Seal, Environmental Technology Verification (ETV)).
We also perform Disinfectant efficacy testing for both screening tests and full efficacy assessments, as required by Health Canada under the Therapeutic Products Program.
AquaTox is now pleased to offer performance testing on hand antiseptic products for certification with EcoLogo and for compliance with Health Canada’s Guidance Document- Human Use Antiseptics
