Direct determination of selenium in biological tissues by X-ray emission spectroscopy is not possible due to the limited sensitivity of all modes of sample excitation. Therefore, it is necessary to develop a preconcentration procedure to bring selenium to detectable level. In this paper a rapid and simple chemical preparation procedure including coprecipitation with APDC for the analysis of selenium in blood serum by X-ray emission spectroscopy is described.
