Using solid-phase Microextraction (SPME) fibres to model PCB bioaccumulation by zebra mussels

The objective of this study is to calibrate bioaccumulation of PCBs   by zebra mussels with sorption by solid-phase microextraction fibers   (SPMEs) in order to develop a baseline model that can be used to   predict the uptake of PCBs by zebra mussels without conducting tests   with live organisms. Since SPMEs mimic the bioconcentration process   by simple partitioning, dietary uptake and chemical metabolism would   not be accounted for. However, since zebra mussels readily   accumulate hydrophobic compounds and are relatively poor at   metabolizing them, they are a good animal model for examining PCB   bioconcentration.    (AIS); (aquatic invasive species); (ANS); (aquatic nuisance   species); (zebra mussel); (zebra mussels); (polychlorinated   biphenyls); (polychlorinated biphenyl); (PCB's); (PCBs); (PCB);   (Dreissena polymorpha); (dreissenid); (dreissenids); (POP); (POPs);   (POP's); (persistent organic pollutant); (persistent organic   pollutants); (PBT); (PBT's); (PBTs); (Persistent, bioaccumulative,   and toxic); (persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic chemicals);   (persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic chemical)
