Additional information

In a static test performed by BASF AG (1987, non GLP) according to a German guideline (DIN 38412 Part 9), an EC50 (72h) of 269.3 mg/l based on Chl-a fluorescence yield measurements was determined for Scenedesmus subspicatus (nominal concentration). A conversion of these Chl-a fluorescence based data set, resulted in an EC50 (72 h) of 537.79 mg/l and a NOEC (72h) of 125 mg/l for growth rate.
