Toxicity Tests

We need to conduct toxicity screening of water samples when there are
chemical spills or fish kills. In such cases, we need to respond to the
public quickly and inform them whether it is safe (epecially when the
waters are for recreational purposes).

Does anyone recommend a toxicity kit/equipment ?   Further to this, would a
single test calculation the % inhibition be sufficient to determine the
toxicity of the waters or tests requiring multiple dilutions to obtain EC50
be adequate?

Thank you for your assistance and time.
