Coastal Bioanalysts, Inc.


Coastal Bioanalysts, Inc. is a full service environmental toxicology firm, providing consulting and testing services in support of NPDES permits, water quality standards, toxicity source evaluations and site assessments.  Acute and chronic toxicity tests are conducted in a variety of matrices using static, static-renewal or flow-through exposure systems.


Standard protocols incorporate EPA, ASTM and USACE methods. Additionally, protocols can be tailored to meet study-specific objectives or requirements. All biological and physical data are collected on electronic bench sheets with real time back-up for greater data security, reduced transcription and calculation errors and faster report turn-around than with paper bench sheets use at most labs.
