  • Wets glass or porcelain to create mirrors.
  • Dental materials, microwave components, high-temp thermometers.
  • Semi-conductors, transistors, telecommunications materials, fluorescent lamps.

Synergistic for Gallium Uptake/Retention:

  • Intestinal absorption increased by carboxlc acids (e.g., citric acid), iron deficiency.

Antagonistic for Gallium Uptake/Retention:
