Ecotoxicology studies

icon Ecotoxicology

The Rovaltain Research Staphyt laboratory (France) carries out all the test for the experimental evaluation of the ecotoxicological effect of substances and products on aquatic and terrestrial organisms/plants, as well as the monitoring of environmental fate (biodegradability – bioaccumulation – transfer between environmental compartments) of substances and products.
We thus help our customers to meet regulatory constraints such as MARKETING AUTHORIZATION, SDS, REACH, BIOCIDES, ECOLABELS…
