Metal analysis of whole blood
ALS Scandinavia offers accredited laboratory blood analysis of 67 elements by high-resolution ICP-MS (ICP-SFMS). Blood analysis for metals gives total concentrations of the elements circulating both extracellularly in serum/plasma as well as intracellularly (blood cell function). Analysis of blood is thus effective for controlling deficiencies or exceeds of essential trace elements and minerals. Blood analysis can also be performed in order to evaluate for example gastrointestinal and renal functions.
A blood sample for metal analysis is typically drawn before, during and/or not long after metal exposure or detoxification.
