Abstract

XRF and PIXE analyses of human head hair samples offer a diagnostical tool to follow a number of physiological and pathological processes. However, exogenous contaminations are to be eliminated in order to get data characteristic for the health conditions of the donor. Based on systematic investigations a washing method appropriate for eliminating exogenous calcium content is proposed and examples are given to show the effect of health conditions on calcium levels in hair samples.
