Abstract
Graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry, with Zeeman background correction and improved matrix modification, was used to measure the plasma selenium content of healthy blood bank donors at the sea-side part of Belgium. The mean plasma selenium concentration of 100 men and 100 women was 79.3 ± 11.0 ng/ml with a range of 51.9 117.7 ng/ml. Women tended to have lower selenium levels compared to men, but at a statistically insignificant level (p > 0.05). No effect of age was observed. The mean plasma selenium concentration measured corresponded well with literature data for Belgium. The obtained values were found to be in the medium range, compared with recent literature values for the European countries. Some factors, influencing concentration levels, are discussed.
