In this paper we present the results of determination of element concentrations in biological, environmental samples by using PGNAA facility which was installed at channel No. 4 of Dalat research reactor. The biological standard samples, Bovine Liver NBS 1577a and Rye Grass BCR 281 and environmental standard samples, Coal Fly Ash NBS 1633a were analyzed to verify the analytical ability of the facility. After that, the concentrations of C, N, S, K, Cl in biological samples and concentration of Al, K, Ti, Mn, Fe, Ca, Gd, Sm, Cd and Si in environmental samples were determined. The detection limits of the above elements were also investigated.
