The bioaccumulation dosing system is specifically designed for the performance of accumulation and elimination studies on fish or other aquatic organisms, in particular for tests with radioactive substances. These bioaccumulatian studies provide information on the uptake of substances from water and its depuratian from e.g. fish tissues needed for the assessing of the relative propensity of substances to enter and persist in aquatic food chains.
The equipment consists of a delivery system for the continuous addition and mixing of the test substance and dilution water. The test solution can be delivered to one or two tanks containing the test substance and one control tanks with water.
The equipment meets the specifications af the SUVA (Schweiz. Unfallversicherungs-Anstalt) for working with radioactive material (Permit C).
