IRMM HCB and HCBD in Blankvoorn (testmaterial for reference material)

M. van Hoek-van Nieuwenhuizen

    Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


    Blankvoorn Nieuwe Merwede (Roach, Rutilus rultilus) has been tested as a reference material for the components HCBD and HCB for biota monitoring according to the Water Framework Directive. Both components in the blankvoorn are present at moderate levels (overall average levels of respectively HCBD 1.6 μg/kg and HCB 6.2 μg/kg). These concentrations are far above reporting limits (respectively 0.1 μg/kg for HCBD and 0.2 μg/kg for HCB) and should therefore be suitable for use in a reference material.
