Healthy and tumor-bearing mice have been analyzed in a trace element time dependent study by employing two different radioisotope XRF systems. Results from these analytical systems, using a point and an annular sosurce, can be readily compared utilizing healthy tissue samples as the normalizing standard. Normalized elemental ratios generated with the two systems for similar tissue samples are in good agreement. The results reported use two of the points generated in the time study of the disease progresss, days zero and day 21.
