Evaluation of the physiologically based extraction test as an indicator of metal toxicity in mussel tissue.


In order to estimate the bioaccessibility of metals from mussel tissues, an in vitro physiologically based extraction test was applied to simulate the human gastrointestinal conditions. The samples were subjected to human body temperature, and Ag, Co, Cr, Cu, Mn, Ni, Pb and Sn were sequentially extracted with simulated gastric solution, followed by… (More)
