With a broad spectrum of test organisms as well as a variety of testing possibilities
under laboratory and semi-field conditions, we offer our customers ecotoxicologic tests
on nontarget arthropods according to the most recent and standardized guidelines
(IOBC / WPRS, ESCORT 3 etc.) for the most different fields of application.

Laboratory studies (Glass plate, inert substrate)
• determination of obtaining the range of effectiveness (range finding test)
• determination of detecting mortality and reproduction
• determination of determining the LR50

Extended laboratory studies (natural substrates: whole plants or leaves / LUFA-soil)
• determination of obtaining the range of effectiveness (range finding test)
• determination of detecting persistency (aged-residue)
• determination of detecting mortality and reproduction
• determination of determining the LR50

Semi-field studies
• spraying of plants in step of actual practice
• exposure of the test organisms under natural conditions
• determination of persistency (aged-residue)
• mortality, reproduction and parasitation ability

Test plants: Test organisms:
• apple, wine
Aphidius rhopalosiphi (parasitic wasps)
• cereals, corn Typhlodromus pyri (predatory mite)
• sugar beets, pepper Chrysoperla carnea* (green lacewings)
• bush beans, tomatoes etc. Coccinella septempunctata (ladybird)
Aleochara bilineata* (rove beetles)
