Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill.  The US EPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency) mandated that EBPI’s Rotifer toxicity test be used for detection of toxicity when dispersants where used.  As EBPI’s toxicity test kits can be adapted for any lab, the Rotifer test was used on the GEOEXPLORER a research vessel located in the Gulf of Mexico.  EBPI continued to work closely with other research groups and universities to understand the genetic effects (chronic effects) of this disaster.  This lead to EBPI’s Muta-ChromoPlate (Ames Test Kit) to make a cameo on the National Geographic Channels awarding winning documentary “Can the Gulf Survive”.
