    Abstract

    Adult Daphnia magna were exposed to 14C-labeled phenol and tissues analyzed for 14C uptake by three methods: (1) tissue solubilizer, (2) tissue solubilizer plus sonication, and (3) sonication alone. Analysis by liquid scintillation counting revealed that measurements of total activity among treatments were not significantly different (α ≤ 0.10) at two count levels. Sonicated samples showed less variation than tissue samples that were solubilized.
