LP16814-3     Copper

DESCRIPTION
  Part: Copper
  Description: Copper analysis is used to diagnose toxicity and metabolism disorders, such as Wilson's disease and Menkes syndrome.

Veterinary Medicine:
Copper sulphate is often added to pig feed to improve weight gain. If the feed is not uniformily mixed, pigs may be exposed to toxic levels of copper. The first indication of toxicity is a rise in blood copper concentration. The primary clinical signs include jaundice, dullness, weakness, anemia, trembling and respiratory distress.
 
 
  Part: Copper
  Description: Copper (symbol Cu, from Latin cuprum) is a heavy metal with an atomic number of 29 and atomic weight of 63.55. It is a ductile metal with excellent electrical conductivity. It was extensively used as an electrical conductor, building material, and component of various alloys. It is an essential nutrient to all higher plants and animals where it is found primarily as a cofactor in various enzymes, and in copper-based pigments. In high amounts, copper can be poisonous or even fatal.
