Application Note: Iron Isotope Ratios in Human Whole Blood by PlasmaQuant® MS
2 February 2018

Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) is now a well-established technique for use in human studies because it can determine both the total elemental content and isotopic ratios with sufficient precision and accuracy in a single analytical run. This application note presents a method for the preparation and determination of Fe isotope ratios in 11 human whole blood sample by ICP-MS with the precision and accuracy to clearly distinguish between female and male samples.
