Ecotox Services Australia (ESA) is Australia’s leading independent, NATA endorsed commercial toxicity testing facility specifically designed to offer state-of-the-art assessment of pollutants using Australasian test species. With our operations commencing in 2000, the laboratory is located in purpose-built premises at Lane Cove NSW.
First Commercial Lab to Gain NATA Endorsement.The ESA laboratory has a comprehensive quality assurance system that meets requirements of the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) and the USEPA for toxicity testing laboratories.
