Polyhalogenated aromatic hydrocarbons, such as polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins are a large and diverse group of environmental pollutants. Their tendency to accumulate in the food chain and their toxicity make monitoring necessary. The reference analysis method is laborious and very expensive, therefore cheap and rapid bioassays have been developed. The chemical-activated luciferase bioassay (CALUX) bioassay uses a recombinant cell line, which responds to dioxins and dioxin-like molecules with Ah receptor (AhR)-dependent induction of firefly luciferase in a dose related response. The CALUX
