(Administrative, laboratory, out of work) The hair and nail were collected and subjected to a series of work, which included washing, drying and digestion  then analyzed by an atomic absorption spectrophotometer to calculated elements (Ni, Cr, Cu, Pb). The study also found that the content of the elements is high, giving a clear and reliable indication of the composition of the elements in the hair and fingernails and the amount of contamination.
