New test offering! Selenium by whole blood

The NDSU-VDL now offers a whole blood test for selenium by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). Antemortem whole blood (EDTA or heparin) selenium is a good indicator of longer-term selenium intake or supplementation.  Adequate whole blood selenium concentrations in most species range from 80 to 350 ppb (parts per billion).  The VDL can provide interpretation of whole blood selenium status of most domestic species, but normal values for exotic species may not be available.
