By using the brine shrimp lethality bioassay method, the LC50 and LC90 value of Alpinia conchigera Griff were assayed. In this study, DMSO was used as solvent. The extract evidence cytotoxic activity against brine shrimp nauplii and calculated LC50 and LC90 value was 6.1?g/ml and 12.2 ?g/ml respectively.
