    Daphnia magna is used widely as a standard ecotoxicological indicator organism, and protocols exist for its use in assessing the toxicity of substances under acute and chronic experimental conditions. Problems that exist in repeatability of such bioassays between laboratories are tractable, but only if the genotype and culture conditions prior to and during tests are strictly controlled. -from Authors
