RE: methods for cadmium and tin
Cadmium reacts with the aurine tricarboxilic acid (Aluminon) procedure. A
0.5% sodium rhodizonate solution at pH 2.8 yields a brown-red precipitate
with cadmium and should yield violet with tin (Lillie & Fullmer). There may
be other staining methods for Cadmium from Japanese literature. It is an
environmental problem there and has led to a debilitating bone disease
called Itai Itai.

Subject: methods for cadmium and tin
We have recently been examining tissue and found high levels of these two
metals via chemical analysis. I wonder if anyone has methods to demonstrate
either tin or cadmium in tissue. They are FFPE samples.
Any help will be gratefully received.
