Iron-55 can be accurately determined directly in blood or other liquid samples by placing the sample in a long length of fine-bore thin-walled polyethylene tubing which is located between two large-area, low background proportional counters. This method reduces the required analysis time from days to minutes with only a slight reduction in sensitivity.
