Smithers Viscient Study Points to Shorter Full Life-Cycle Testing

WAREHAM, MA, USA – July 29, 2016 – Smithers Viscient, a global contract researchorganization (CRO), has announced new findings regarding the duration of fish full life-cycletesting. The testing protocol, designed to assess the toxicity of a given chemical over the full life-cycle of fish, historically requires an average exposure of 260 days (or 8.7 months). The SmithersViscient studies produced consistent and accurate data with an exposure of approximately 180days (6 months).
