The Aliivibrio fischeri (formally Vibrio Fischeri) WaterTox™ EVO Kit is packaged as a cost effective modification to the 1243-1000 WaterTox™ STD Kit. Bacterial reagents are packaged for smaller sample numbers reducing waste and shipping costs.  Results can be interpreted by any luminometer. 

vibrio fisheri iso toxicity test

  1. Freeze dried Aliivibrio fischeri reagent vials x 6 (each vial can accommodate 24 toxicity determinations) 
  2. 6 bottles of diluent (11 mL), sufficient to reconstitute all reagents.
  3. 1 x 9.0 g NaCl salt tablet to prepare OAS solution and sample diluents in situ

ISO 11348-3: Water quality – Determination of the inhibitory effect of water samples on the light emission of Vibrio fischeri (luminescent bacteria test).

ISO 21338:2010 Water quality — Kinetic determination of the inhibitory effects of sediment, other solids and coloured samples on the light emission of Vibrio fischeri (kinetic luminescent bacteria test)

The BioTox™ reagents perform as well as several similar commercial test systems (Microtox, LumiStox, ToxAlert) when conducted according to the ISO standards mentioned above. The test organisms are extremely sensitive to organic contaminants and show excellent correlation with toxicity assessments performed with other aquatic species like the fathead minnow and Daphnia magna.
