Although efforts have been devoted to developing improved instrumentation and sample preparation, accurate measurement of uranium isotopes in environmental and biological samples presents an analytical challenge. This is especially true when mass spectrometric techniques are used to detect minor isotopes such as 234U and 236U. This note reports the measurement of 234U, 235U, 236U and 238U by thermal ionization mass spectrometry in 20 human tissue samples from the United States Transuranium and Uranium Registries Case 1028.
