Qualitative aspects of toxicology are important because they are fundamental to the safety evaluation process in which, one first determines the toxicologic profile of the substance and then establishes how the chemical can be employed safely to prevent injury (Plaa, 1982). According to Durham (1974), toxicity is the ability of a chemical molecule or compound to produce injury once it reaches susceptible site which is determined by the dosage. Cairns (1984) reported that from a regulatory point of view, toxicity tests are used for three major purposes; they are 1. screening of chemicals and products, ii. establishing limits and iii. monitoring; the author further stated that bioassay test can be used to establish the maximum acceptable concentration of a pollutant in a given environment without deliberate application of the chemical causing any unfavourable biological consequences.
