Fish bio-concentration factors (BCF) database

ARCHE Consulting, in partnership with CEFIC LRI, has created a database of the most accurate fish bioconcentration factor (BCF) data. Traditional methods of determining BCF through experimentation are time-consuming, labour and resource intenstive, and require many test animals. To address this, a reference database was developed by carefully scrutinizing data from published literature or compiled from existing databases.

The resulting database is a gold standard of fish BCF values which includes 1130 data points for 549 substances and 18 fish species. Objective guidelines for evaluating BCF data and a manual for updating the database were also created to ensure consistency.

The BCF database offers additional value as it is:
