Estimation of heavy metals in blood

Gigiena i Sanitariya ( 7): 84-85

Estimation of heavy metals in blood

A method of estimating heavy metals in small volumes of blood (0.1 to 0.2 ml) which obviates the use of costly anticoagulants while maintaining the sensitivity and accuracy of atomic-absorption spectrometric analysis is described. The 2-step method involves cryogenic and chemical degradation of samples followed by elementometry using 0.1% ascorbic acid as matrix transformer.
