How can a drop of blood be used for elemental analysis?
Clinical dosage of toxic and essential elements in blood is well established; however, the collection method nowadays is still by venipuncture. This method has several drawbacks and is not suited for everyone, especially pediatric patients. Fortunately, volumetric absorptive microsampling (VAMS®) has been shown to bring significant advantages over venipuncture for blood sampling.
This webinar provides an overview of the development and validation as well as the performance of a method for the quantification by ICP-MS/MS of various toxic and essential elements in blood collected on VAMS tips.
