Method Atomic absorption spectrometry
Comments "Direct measurements of the intracellular iron content using atomic absorption spectrometry revealed that in early exponential phase cells, the iron content in all three mutant strains was approximately 70% of that in wild-type cells (wild-type content: 9.3?10^6±7.5?10^5 atoms/cell)."
