Written by the international community's leading experts, Trace Elements in Laboratory Rodents describes the best and most current methods to provide deficient or supplemental trace elements to laboratory animals, as well as how to assay them. The experts warn of the common pitfalls and hidden problems in nutritional testing and how to avoid them. This how-to approach focuses on the technical details that make good, reliable studies. Common as well as rare or recently recognized minerals are described relating to both dietary supplementation and measurement in tissues.
If you are a researcher, professor, or student working in nutrition, food science, biochemistry, or veterinary medicine, you can't afford to be without this excellent hands-on methods manual!
