A rapid instrumental system for measuring selenium via 17 second77mSe has been applied to the analysis of a wide variety of biological specimens encountered in biomedical research. The reliability and versatility of the method is documented for serum and animal tissue specimens. Analysis results for SRM 1577 bovine liver show excellent accuracy and precision.
