Abstract Routine use of solid-phase sediment toxicity tests for scientific and regulatory purposes necessitates the development of solid-phase reference toxicant materials. In order to evaluate an approach for developing such materials, 12 solid-phase 96-h reference toxicant tests were conducted over 12 weeks with the marine bivalve Mulinia lateralis. Measured concentrations of copper in the water column above the reference material during testing showed that the toxicant exposures were relatively consistent between tests. Coefficients of variation (CV) for mortality and sublethality (growth) endpoints were 39% and 42%, respectively. (Copyright (c) 1994 Springer-Verlag New York Inc.
