Services

Coastal Bioanalysts, Inc. provides consulting and testing services in support of product registration, NPDES permits, water quality standards, toxicity source evaluations, and site assessments. Additionally, we are always willing and able to assist with determining clients' specific regulatory testing requirements.

 

Acute and chronic toxicity tests are conducted in a variety of matrices using static, static-renewal, or flow-through exposure systems.  All biological and physical data are collected on electronic bench sheets with real time back-up for greater data security, reduced transcription and calculation errors, and faster report turn-around than with traditional paper bench sheets.

For more information, email Peter F. De Lisle, PhD at pfd@coastalbio.com or call us at (804) 694-8285.

We conduct over a thousand WET tests every year and can help you navigate your permit to make sure your testing is done correctly and efficiently.
