Abstract

A method is discussed for the assay of manganese and copper, in body fluids, consisting of sample dialysis prior to irradiation followed by gamma-ray spectrometric quantitation. Sodium level is greatly reduced and the residual radioactivity is low. The nondialyzable levels of manganese and copper were established for serum, cerebrospinalfluid, saliva, and urine.
