Red blood cells may be labelled with 51Cr in the form of sodium chromate. The binding of 51Cr to the red cells is very tight and if these labelled red cells are injected into the body intravenously, most of the 51Cr remains bound to the cells until they are destroyed. The labelling procedure must be carried out carefully so that no significant damage occurs to the red cells.
