We have investigated the superconducting properties of UPt3 by determining the Meissner effect via ac and dc susceptibility and magnetization measurements. We found an upper and lower limit of the superconducting volume fraction of 80% and 30% with magnetization and flux expulsion experiments, respectively. Thus, the superconductivity of UPt3 is a bulk property.
