A survey is given of various nuclear analytical methods. The type of analytical information obtainable and advantageous features for application in the life sciences are briefly indicated. These features are: physically different basis of the analytical method, isotopic rather than elemental determination, no interfering effect of electrons and molecular structure, and penetrating character of nuclear radiation. Suggestions are given for exploitation of the sometimes unique potentials of nuclear analytical methods, particularly when requiring considerable investment for equipment, supporting facilities, and specialized staff.
