A solvent-free method for spiking terrestrial algae (Desmococcus spp.) with pyrene for use in bioassays.

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Two methods for spiking terrestrial algae (Desmococcus spp., used as a foodstuff in bioassays with Collembola) with pyrene were tested; a "traditional" method that used a carrier solution of pyrene in acetone, and a solvent-free method developed using the principles of partition driven administration (PDA). The PDA method used a pre-spiked, highly-contaminated C
