Four laboratories participated in a bioconcentration interlaboratory comparison study using the eastern oyster (Crassostrea virginica). Three chemicals were selected for study, including p,p'-DDE, pentachlorophenol (PCP), and 1,2,4-trichlorobenzene (TCB). The test method used was that of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) 'Standard Practice for Conducting Bioconcentration tests with Fishes and Saltwater Bivalve Molluscs'. These results indicate that the ASTM Method can generate reproducible results even though the participating laboratories varied in their experience and in their water quality characteristics and were widely separated geographically.
