The preparation of biological reference materials for QUASIMEME

    Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


    Biological materials, consisting of three different batches of mussels; from Den Helder harbour (POPs, TBT), Irish mussels (metals) and Wadden Sea mussels, fortified with highly contaminated mussels from Belgium (POPs), and of one batch of turbot liver (metals) have been prepared for use in QUASIMEME interlaboratory studies for metal and organic contaminant analyses. The homogeneity of the prepared material was tested for metals or POPs, depending on the intended use of the material, and indicative concentrations for selected contaminants were reported.
