The majority of calcium in the body is present in bones. The remainder of the calcium is present in serum and has various functions. For example, calcium ions decrease neuromuscular excitability, participate in blood coagulation, and activate some enzymes. Calcium has traditionally been difficult to measure accurately and precisely, and a large variety of methods have been developed.
