Abstract
The measurement of the different species of the trace elements in clin ical samples requires a sample preparation and handling that is specia lly designed for that purpose. The present article is an attempt to gi ve background information about the various procedures. Some of the di fficulties that may affect the separation and the stability of the spe cies will be highlighted with practical examples. The intent is not to present a review of the existing knowledge about all the different sp ecies of the trace elements, neither to give procedural details in var ious biological fluids and tissues, but rather to initiate the reader who wants to start research on this topic.
