They described interference of common solvents used in brine shrimp
lethality tests, including methanol, and suggest 1.25% as the maximum concentration when evaluating toxicity of a substance that contains methanol as a solvent.

The synthesized compounds and resolved complexes were then screened for their in vitro antimicrobial activity and brine shrimp
Summary: A series of organic and organometallic Schiff bases bearing phenylferrocene and their six transition metal complexes have been prepared and tested for their potential biological applications by using antifungal, antibacterial, antitumor activities, toxicity testing against the brine shrimp
and DNA damage analysis.
In this research exercise, an efficient, cost effective and easy method of brine shrimp
lethality bio-assay was used whose results are comparable to the expensive cytotoxic bioassays .
This shows that the extract of SS302C was not lethal to the brine shrimps
This review is concluded by discussing directions for future studies on Chilean brine shrimps
, mainly with respect to their ecology and management.
Knipholone was screened for cytotoxicity against brine shrimp
nauplii in a micro-dilution assay and showed a weak cytotoxic effect with E[D.sub.50] value of 0.58 mM.
Cytotoxic effect of the Cardia obaliqua methonolic crude extracts was measured and noted against brine shrimps
growth as shown in Table 1.
The faster the brine shrimps
began dying, the more bioactive the extract is.
Anti-leishmanial activity was performed against Leishmania tropica promastigote stage parasite while insecticidal activity was assessed through brine shrimps
Every year the flamingos flock to the salt lake to feed off of brine shrimps
, with many of them staying all year round if the conditions remain perfect, which according to Charilaou, they currently are: "We have had a lot of rainfall recently and flamingos are opportunistic and will stay as long as there is food and water.
The mortality rates of brine shrimps
nauplii increased with the raise of the concentration of the tested crude extracts.
antidysenterica also exhibited potent cytotoxicity for brine shrimps
but there was no earlier report on anticancer activity of plant extract or its isolated compounds.
