Abstract
The biological standard reference materials Orchard Leaves SRM 1571 and Oyster Tissue SRM 1566a were analysed by instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) at the International Centre for Environmental and Nuclear Sciences, Jamaica at (ICENS) and at the Instituto de Pesquisas Energeticas e Nucleares (IPEN-CNEN/SP), Brazil. The comparison of the results with those obtained with the more powerful reactor are used to evaluate the possibilities of INAA for the analysis of biological samples at ICENS. The detection limits, the precision and accuracy of the results obtained in both laboratories are compared. The advantages and disadvantages of the different irradiation facilities are discussed. Some results obtained for Jamaican biological samples are also presented.....
