About this book

A well-planned study of biological trace elements requires a multidisciplinary strategy and total quality control from experimental design to collection of valid samples, chemical analysis, data evaluation, and interpretations. To develop a reliable database for the elemental content and speciation of biological systems, analytical chemists, life scientists, and statisticians must plan studies together. This new volume stresses the need for this multidisciplinary approach through discussion of such topics as planning considerations, quality assurance, analytical methods, and speciation and bioavailability.
