Bioassays to assess materials in contact with drinking water

Assessment of unpredictable substances


Within the project „bioassay-based test strategy to determine risk potentials of migration waters“ the German Environment Agency (UBA) and the Association for Pipe Systems Inside Buildings (VRH) had the common aim to develop a test strategy based on established bioassays. This in vitro test strategy detects cytotoxicity, genotoxicity and estrogenic like activity of migration waters.
