As foreseen by the Italian National Programme of Research in Antarctica, a preliminary investigation was performed to ascertain the feasibility of the production of a new Certified Reference Material for trace elements based on the bivalve Adamussium colbecki. The scallops sampled in Antarctica during the 1999–2000 Italian scientific expedition were analyzed by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry and high-resolution inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry for their content in selected trace elements (As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Hg, Mn, Mo, Ni, V and Zn). The certification campaign will be undertaken on the basis of the findings of this feasibility study in close cooperation with the Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements, Joint Research Centre of the European Commission.
