Assessment of the water-extractable genotoxic potential of soil samples from contaminated sites.
A screening method for the evaluation of the water-extractable genotoxic potential of soil is proposed. Due to the low sensitivity of genotoxicity test systems, PAD-1 resin was used as solid phase toExpand

Quantitative assessment of the embryotoxic potential of NSO-heterocyclic compounds using zebrafish (Danio rerio).
Heterocyclic aromatic compounds (NSO-HET) have frequently been detected in the environment. Several studies have concluded that NSO-HET pose a threat to organisms in waters, sediments and soils.Expand

Toxicological characterization of 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene, its transformation products, and two nitramine explosives.
The soil and groundwater of former ordnance plants and their dumping sites have often been highly contaminated with the explosive 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (2,4,6-TNT) leading to a potential hazard forExpand

Comparative studies on algal toxicity testing using fluorometric microplate and Erlenmeyer flask growth-inhibition assays.
Two fluorometric microplate algae growth-inhibition assays with a liquid volume of 2 mL and 200 microL per well are presented, and comparative studies on the toxicity of chemicals are carried outExpand

Heterocyclic compounds: toxic effects using algae, daphnids, and the Salmonella/microsome test taking methodical quantitative aspects into account.
Heterocyclic aromatic hydrocarbons containing nitrogen, sulfur, or oxygen (NSO-HET), have been detected in air, soil, sewage sludge, marine environments, and freshwater sediments. Since toxicity dataExpand

Proposal of a testing strategy and assessment criteria for the ecotoxicological assessment of soil or soil materials
Background and ScopeInformation on a potential contamination of soils or soil materials are derived by chemical analysis which takes place specifically for a given substance. For a comprehensiveExpand

From the exposome to mechanistic understanding of chemical-induced adverse effects.
The exposome encompasses an individual's exposure to exogenous chemicals, as well as endogenous chemicals that are produced or altered in response to external stressors. While the exposome conceptExpand

Some heterocyclic aromatic compounds are Ah receptor agonists in the DR-CALUX assay and the EROD assay with RTL-W1 cells
PurposeHeterocyclic aromatic compounds containing nitrogen, sulfur, or oxygen heteroatoms (NSO-HET) have been detected in air, soil, marine, and freshwater systems. However, only few publications areExpand

Bioassays for the ecotoxicological and genotoxicological assessment of contaminated soils (results of a round robin test)
For the assessment of contaminated or remediated soils, in addition to chemical analyses, ecotoxicological tests are performed which focus on the retention function of soils (determined by tests withExpand

Microcosms-experiments to assess the potential for natural attenuation of contaminated groundwater.
Groundwater samples from six wells of a former gas plant site were characterised using chemical, microbial and ecotoxicological methods. Degradation studies were performed in batch-culture underExpand
