The Spectrochemical Determination of Lead in Blood by the Residue AC Arc Method
A method is described for the determination of lead in blood to the concentration range of 0.02 to 0.5 mg of lead per 100 cc of blood (0.2 to 5 ppm). Ashing is avoided by treatment of the sample with trichloroacetic acid solution. Portions of the treated sample are applied to flat-top electrodes and excited by the use of a 110 V AC arc.
