The purpose of this project was to provide a centralized source for the preparation and characterization of selected particulate materials for biological experiments. The particulate materials of interest were a range of environmental contaminants known or suspected to detrimentally affect human health. The prepared materials were delivered to personnel at the Environmental Protection Agency and to designated EPA contractors. The centralized source approach helped to assure that the results of biological experiments conducted at different laboratories were comparable. In addition, the centralized source approach placed specialists in particle technology at the disposal of biological researchers. Thus, more intricate particle preparation procedures could be undertaken than would otherwise be the case. Source powders were collected, size classified, and characterized for use. Preparations were shipped to (1) State University of New York at Stony Brook for two long-term series of experiments, (2) life sciences Division of IIT Research Institute for two series of experiments, and (3) EPA/Cincinnati.
