Formatted Abstract/Summary
In this study we could demonstrate promising results for the application of bioanalytical test systems for the water quality assessment of disinfected drinking water. DBP-related toxic effects were detectable at <10-fold enriched water samples while the assays for cytotoxicity (Microtox) and oxidative stress detection (AREc32) were more sensitive than the assays for genotoxicity and protein damage. This is a preliminary study, which was limited to non-volatile DBPs but we plan to expand the battery to more reactive mechanisms and adapt the bioassays for dosing of volatile compounds.
