A micromethod is described for the analysis of zinc in plasma or serum by electrothermal atomisation and graphite furnace utilising less than 20 microliters sample volume. The sample matrix introduced an error when aqueous standards were used. Therefore standards were made up in serum which had been treated with Chelex 100 to remove as much zinc as possible. The residual zinc (less than 0.125 mg/l) was determined by flame analysis using the method of additions and each standard assigned a value… CONTINUE READING
