Application Note: The NexION 2000: A Perfect Tool for the Determination of Trace Elements in Blood and Serum
17 July 2017
For many years, inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) has been the technique of choice for trace element analysis in biological fluids. Researchers have found correlations between essential element levels and diseases, metabolic disorders, environmental exposures, and nutritional status. This application note demonstrates the advantages of the NexION 2000 ICP-MS for trace elemental analysis in blood and serum, and explores the ability to simplify sample preparation.
