Abstract This report describes a preliminary study undertaken in advance of the BARGE UBM international inter-laboratory trial to investigate the use of 0.1M nitric acid as an effective preservative for the 'stomach' and 'stomach & intestinal' extracts produced in the in vitro methodology. Results for preserved and unpreserved extracts are described for measurements collected over a period of c. 1 month, with an evaluation of the extract stability and recommendations for the full BARGE inter-laboratory trial.
