Selenium belongs to a group of trace elements of special interest in biological samples for clinical diagnosis. Selenium has antioxidizing functions and is essential for providing the organism with triiodothyronine produced from thyroxine. Among several analytical techniques used to determine the Se concentration in serum, Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) has been used in the past because of its high sensitivity. Interference problems originating from different ions on the… CONTINUE READING
