Centre for

Marine Biodiversity and Biotechnology

From the shoreline to the deep ocean, tackling issues from pure ecology
and physiology to aquaculture, marine spatial planning and conservation.

Toxicity Analysis

To measure the biological response of organisms to specific contaminants or complex mixtures of contaminants, we apply a number of OECD-accredited toxicity tests (freshwater and marine) and ecotoxicological biomarker assays adapted to marine and estuarine environments.

Specific equipment within CMBB:

Comet Assay IV (Perceptive Instruments)

SpectraMax plate readers

Microtox 500 Analyser

qPCR, Microbiology Suite

Malvern DLS/Zeta Sizer
