ISO 11348 describes three methods for determining the inhibition of the luminescence emitted by the marine bacterium Vibrio fischeri (NRRL B‑11177). ISO 11348-1:2007 specifies a method using freshly prepared bacteria.

This method is applicable to:

  • waste water;
  • aqueous extracts and leachates;
  • fresh water (surface and ground water);
  • sea and brackish water;
  • eluates of sediment (fresh water, brackish and sea water);
  • pore water;
  • single substances, diluted in water.
