Abstract A convenient and accurate technique for the estimation of strontium with the x-ray spectrometer in human serum and bone is described. For bone a calcium-- strontium ratio of 1204 and 1231 is found for rib and skull, respectively, in the human. For human serum a calcium--strontium ratio of 390 is obtained. Normal human serum contains 25.6 mu g of strontium per 100 ml with a standard deviation of plus or minus 1.02 for six pools. Fifteen sera, both normal and abnormal, taken at random from the routine clinical laboratory, yielded values ranging from 16.4 to 31.0 mu g per 100 ml. An instrument is described for evaporating a strontium solution onto filter paper to obtain a relatively uniform spot for analysis by x-ray spectrometry. (auth)
