Abstract  

Vanadium in serum was investigated by pre-irradiation chemistry neutron activation analysis employing anion exchange chromatography and post-irradiation neutron activation employing solvent extraction techniques. From a comparison of these techniques it is concluded that vanadium is present in human serum in the sub-ppb range.
