What We Do

  • Bioassay / Toxicity

    The guiding principle in environmental protection is preserving the environment’s ability to support life, so bioassays of environmental samples are of primary importance to regulatory authorities. For this reason, Meritech, Inc. places special emphasis on the quality of its Bioassay Department, in terms of the personnel performing these assays, the quality of the bioassay test organisms, and the facility itself.
