Specializing in Biomolecular Testing Kits for Toxicity, Mutagenicity, and Genotoxicity.

EBPI is a biotechnology-based company specializing in the manufacture and custom application of simple, rapid, and cost effective methods for detection and monitoring of toxic, mutagenic and genotoxic materials. In addition to being used for evaluation of existing and new chemicals, the kits have found application in assessing environmental pollution risks in drinking water, wastewater, soil and air. We are a research and development-focused laboratory and manufacturing facility continually developing new testing procedures and easy-to-use testing kits for use by research laboratories around the world.

Ames Reverse Mutation Kit

A microplate version of the traditional "pour plate" Ames Test.
The Muta-ChromoPlateTM Kit is sensitive and user friendly. It is commonly used to detect mutagenic potential of individual chemicals or mixtures of chemicals in water, wastewater, sediment, air aqueous extracts, new chemicals, foods, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and any other material that can be put into aqueous solution or micro-suspension, such that it can be taken up by the test strain.

SOS Gene Response DNA Damage

A microplate genotoxicity bioassay based on the primary response of a genetically engineered bacteria to determine DNA genotoxicity damage.
The SOS-ChromoTestTM Kit can be used to evaluate the presence of genotoxic agents in water, wastewater, sediment, air, chemicals, food, cosmetics, and  for any material that can be put into aqueous solution or micro-
suspension such that it can be taken up by the test strain.

Toxicity Testing

A microplate toxicity bioassay to determine acute or chronic toxicity in water, effluents, and other liquids.
The Toxi-ChromoTestTM Kits endpoint is either partial or complete enzyme inhibition related to the toxic stress the test organism is exposed to. It’s endpoint is a simple color change that can be determined visually or using a plate reader at a wavelen
gth of 610nm.

Sediment Toxicity Testing

A pad toxicity bioassay to determine acute toxicity of materials found in sediments, sludge, soils, or other solid waste materials.
The Toxi-ChromoPad
TM does not rely on the extraction of chemicals from the substrate and thus is a direct measure of biological exposure potential. It is based upon the same test organism and response as the aqueous based Toxi-ChromoTest. 

umu-c test for genotoxicity

A microplate toxicity bioassay, EBPI has developed the UMU-CHROMOTESTTM into a simple procedure based upon the International Organization for Standardization protocol ISO 13829 (Water Quality- Determination of the genotoxicity of water and waste water using the umu-test), which can be performed easily in a non‑specialized laboratory.

Coliplate e-coli screening
A convenient test for quantitative measure of total coliforms and E. Coli bacteria. The ColiPlate test is designed to meet regulatory guidelines and quantifies density of target bacteria, coliforms and E. Coli, ranging from 5 to 5,000 colony forming-units (cfu) per 100 mL sample, without dilutions.

MicroBioTests kit

MicroBioTests Inc located in Gent Belgium, is the developer and manufacturer of the TOXKIT line of products.  These kits (like EBPI's line of toxicity testing kits) are used for the detection and quantification of the toxicity of chemicals and or solid and liquid wastes which pollute aquatic and terrestrial environments.  All product lines have the unique characteristics that they are culture and maintenance free bioassays, which do not require stock culturing of the test organisms.


Shortly after the Deepwater Horizon's oil pipe break in the Gulf ofMexico,decision by government authorities along with management groups to use the marine microbiotest with Brachionus plicatilis (Rotoxkit M) for detection and quantification of the toxic hazard of the waters in the Gulf of Mexico was put into place.

The Rotoxkit M culture/maintenance free assay was selected for this application in part because of its portability and ease of use and its ability to be rapidly deployed for use on research vessels as was required in the Gulf of Mexico

MicroBioTests Inc have developed these kits with ISO, EPA, and ASPM standards in mind.

The full Toxkit line of products can be found under the MicroBioTests link on either main menu.  

A complete list of components of these kits can be found under the "MicroBioTest - Component" link on the key concepts menu.

Please contact EBPI for further information regarding any of the toxicity testing kit manufactured or distributed by EBPI.


Environmental Monitoring Software

  EBPI welcomes EMMA Pro (Environmental Monitoring Management Application) software to our line of monitoring products.  

EMMA Pro is a low cost  Environmental Monitoring Management Software Application, though is currently available for a FREE 60 DAY Trial.

The Environmental Monitoring Management Application stores environmental data in a database which allows access of the data through a geographic interface. The data stored within the database can be queried, exported, processed and re-mapped through the geographic image or map.

EMMA Pro is designed to manage field measurements and images in an organized manner, allowing for easy access to site specific data.

Environmental data sets saved in excel spreadsheets can be imported to the database, and user-defined data queries can be used to retrieve data out of the database.  The queried data set can then be exported to excel spreadsheet files, or processed and mapped on their own location points through the geographic image or map.
