In order to establish reference values of thallium in tissues of the general population the element was determined in blood (TlB) and urine (TlU) of 123 healthy inhabitants living in the Marche region, Central Italy.
The analysis was carried out by inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS ; detection limit in our experimental conditions, 0.001 mug Tl/I), which was validated by neutron activation analysis (NAA) and laser induced fluorecence (LIF) spectroscopy.
The check of pre-analytical factors indicated a low risk of contamination and loss of Tl during sampling, handling and storage before the instrumental analysis.
(blank of the entire procedure less than the detection limit).
