Instrumental activation analysis was used to determine the contents of certain elements in human serum albumin (HSA). Sample
irradiation was performed with a thermal neutron flux of 1.5·1013 n·cm−2·sec−1 in the RA nuclear reactor of the Boris Kidrič Institute, Vinča. Measurements were performed on a 4096-channel analyser with
a high-resolution Ge(Li) detector. The Na, Cu, Br, Au, Hg, Cr, Fe, Ag, Sc, Ba and Co contents were determined in HSA produced
by the Institute for Blood Transfusion, Belgrade.
