hether your facility is in compliance or returning to compliance, your WET tests rely on two things—skilled technicians and robust organisms.

Our science-degreed technicians culture our organisms under the same roof and with the same water as our testing facility which means the organisms used for your test experience minimal stress.

Services

  • Acute & Chronic Whole Effluent Toxicity (WET) Testing
  • Toxicity Identification Evaluations (TIEs)
  • Water- and Synthetic-Based Drilling Fluids
  • Whole Sediment Toxicity Testing
