Description The Frog Embryo Teratogenesis Assay Xenopus (FETAX) described in this protocol is intended for use in screening level assessments of soil toxicity at hazardous waste sites being investigated under the Washington Model Toxics Control Act Cleanup Regulation. FETAX is a 96-hour static renewal, whole embryo bioassay, that may be used to evaluate the developmental toxicity of a test material. In this protocol, FETAX will be used to assess the toxicity of eluates prepared from field-collected soil samples. Serial dilutions are not required.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
