EPA programs in pesticides, toxics, and hazardous waste require analytical reference materials. The project emphasized the collection of and analysis of urine, fat, and blood for ultimate use as reference samples and the practicality of using certain metabolites to indicate previous exposure to chlorinated hydrocarbons. The reference samples can, with verified compound concentrations, be used as qualifying samples when evaluating a technique to use for a particular analysis. However, the reference materials may be of greatest benefit when used by laboratories to determine analytical accuracy for samples of human urine, blood, etc. This is because the standards, like the unknown samples, will contain pollutant compounds and associated metabolites (all in vivo incorporated). Dairy animals were used during this study.
