    Direct atomic absorption mercury determination in tissues and biological samples

    INTRODUCTION

    Mercury and its compounds are highly toxic substances fo r humans. It occurs naturally and exists in various forms: elemental (or metallic); inorganic (e.g. mercuric chloride); and organic (e.g., methyl- and ethylmercury). These forms all have different toxicities and implications for health. Among naturally occurring mercury compounds, methylme rcury exerts a significant influence (neurotoxic action) on human health.

  • Determination of Mercury in Water Samples by HG-AFS

    Mercury and its sompounds are highly toxic materials and can be transferred into the human body via water; the concentration of mercury in water generally is very low. With the superior sensitivity of Aurora`s Atomic Fluorescence Spectrometer, the LUMINA 3300, direct measurement of mercury in water sample is possible.

    Mercury monitoring for mercury flux measurement

    The Tekran 2537 has been used in numerous published studies to measure the deposition or evasion of mercury from natural or contaminated surfaces (i.e. flux measurements). It is anticipated that many mercury flux measurements will be needed in the future to assess the impact of climate change on mercury cycling in the environment. There are two basic ways to do mercury flux measurements. First, the dynamic flux chamber method utilizes a custom enclosure, with controlled air flow, to measure the inlet and outlet concentration over a selected surface to determine the flux over time. Alternatively, the micrometeorological gradient method uses measured concentrations at two levels above a surface. The perfect tool for both flux measurement methods is the Tekran 1110 Two Port Sampler, so the Tekran 2537 can automatically switch between two distinct sampling points. Ask us how we can help you setup a mercury flux system.

    Determination of the total mercury in a filtrate of wash-off samples from contaminated surfaces

    INTRODUCTION

    Quantitative determination of the total mercury content in filtrates of wash-off samples from the surfaces of walls, floors, equipment, and other facilities of m anufacturing areas is an effective method for the occupational safety monitoring.

    Mercury monitoring for ocean cruises

    Researchers at Battelle Pacific Northwest Laboratory used a Tekran 2600 on a 2009 ship cruise. Due to the low levels of mercury in water, Tekran provided them with a custom 2600 Event Table to pre-concentrate mercury from multiple samples to push the detection limit lower. When planning an ocean bound cruise, instrument dependability is a paramount concern. At sea, there is no possibility to return instrumentation to the manufacturer for quick repair. The Tekran 2600 has a well deserved reputation for dependability and performance. If any repairs are necessary, the instrument is highly user-serviceable and easy to maintain.

    RAPID ANALYSIS OF TOTAL MERCURY IN WASTE WATERS AND PROCESS WATERS WITH ELEVATED MERCURY CONTENT USING DIRECT PYROLYSIS TECHNIQUE

    A conventional standard method of total mercury determination in water using atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS) involves preliminary sample digestion that takes from 30 minutes to 8 hours depending on the digestion conditions. The use of a mercury analyzer RA-915M/RA-915+ with Zeeman background correction in combination with PYRO-915+ pyrolysis attachment provides direct determination of mercury in process and waste waters contaminated with mercury without digestion or any other sample preparation stages. The measuring method is based on thermal atomization of mercury from a sample using a PYRO-915+ attachment and its consequent determination by flameless AAS with Zeeman background correction using the RA-915M mercury analyzer. The total time needed for determination of mercury is not longer than 2 minutes. RA-915+/915M is compliant with US EPA 7473 and ASTM D7622 methods.

    Mercury monitoring for manual analysis of air traps

    The Tekran 2600 versatility is evident with the economical and convenient configuration for manual analysis of air samples collected on gold cartridges. Converting the instrument allows calibration by simple injection of gaseous Hg using the Tekran 2505. Once analyzed, the gold cartridges are immediately ready for redeployment.

    Direct atomic absorption mercury determination in foodstuff and mixed feed

    Direct atomic absorption mercury determination (without any pre-treatment procedures) in food is complicated by its organics matrix. That is the reason why almost all AAS methods of mercury determination in foodstuff include sample digestion by acids.

    Determination of heavy metals in food

    This analytical procedure is intended for measuring the content of the elements (cadmium, lead, arsenic, tin, chromium and mercury) in the samples of food products by atomic absorption spectrometry with electrothermal atomization using an “MGA-915M” Graphite Furnace AA Spectrometer.

    The method is based on measuring resonance radiation absorption that occurs when the radiation passes through a layer of atomic vapor in the electrically heated graphite furnace of the “MGA-915M” AA spectrometer. The concentration of the elements is determined from the integrated analytical signal and is calculated using a preset calibration graph. The samples of food products are digested prior to analysis in accordance with standard methods.
