Abstract

The calcium concentration was determined in human hair of several normal individuals and of patients suffering from various bone diseases. A comparison of results achieved with an ion-selective electrode with those obtained with the neutron activation analysis demonstrated a good accuracy of the two methods. The precision of the determination with the ionselective electrode may be characterized by a relative standard error of 8.8%.
