It is very difficult to analyze the microcystins, cyanobacterial toxins quantitatively since it exists in a trace level in lakes. In this paper, two different analytical methods were tried to analyze the microcystins, cyanobacterial toxins quantitatively in water samples collected in Soyang lake. The first method was solid phase extraction method fol-lowed by High Performance Liquid Chromatography(HPLC), and the second method was Enzyme-Linked Immu-nosorbent Assay(ELISA) using the monoclonal antibody of microcystin.
