Abstract  

A new simple method for the simultaneous determination of59Fe and55Fe concentration in 5 ml samples of blood is described and carefully evaluated. Before the measurement of the activity of the radionuclides, organic matter was eliminated by HNO3−HClO4 wet ashing. Iron was electroplated onto a copper plate. The accuracy of results was studied by assessing samples, which contained known amounts of radioactivity and determining the counts per nanocurie in each case. The accuracy of the results of59Fe and55Fe determinations was found to be about 5%.
