Rapid determination of selenium in erythrocytes by neutron activation analysis

Abstract

The use of ultrafiltration prior to the determination of selenium via the short-lived activation product,77mSe, provided a simple and rapid method for the determination of this element in erythrocytes. An associated reduction in analytical error made this procedure acceptable for monitoring small changes in erythrocyte selenium concentrations.
