Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has published a proposal to add Microtox Toxicity Test Technology to the approved methods for Whole Effluent Toxicity (WET) testing. The proposal was published in the April 6, 2004 Federal Register and comments on the proposal are currently being reviewed by the EPA. If the EPA proposal becomes an accepted standard, testing for National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits would be able to use the Microtox protocol.


No one screening test will provide the definitive evaluation of toxicity. There are simply too many variables affecting toxicity that are not capable of being compiled and measured by a single method of screening. However, a simple, low-cost, fast and reliable test such as the Microtox Rapid Toxicity Testing System can be an effective tool to point to where other toxicity screening protocols may be necessary. The Microtox protocol – at a minimum – will give an indication of toxicity and environmental friendliness.


Terry Smith graduated from the College of Liberal Arts at University of Kansas with majors in chemistry and comparative biochemistry & physiology. His career in the lubricant industry began in April 1969 as a chemist for Southwest Grease & Oil / Southwest Petrochem in Wichita, Kan. After spending 12 years with Southwest, his career with Lubrication Engineers, Inc. began in 1981 when LE’s manufacturing plant came online in Wichita. He worked for LE in various laboratory-related capacities for 35-plus years until his retirement in July 2016.
