    Mercury monitoring for measuring mercury content in hair

    Measurement of mercury content in hair is a convenient technique to estimate dietary exposure without having to handle tissues or bodily fluids. As the mercury present in hair is comprised of different mercury species, full speciation of the compounds is needed for complete understanding. Environment Canada published a technique where treating a basic digestion with Cd2+ in the presence of cysteine allowed analysis of inorganic mercury and total mercury using a Tekran 2600 System. Methyl mercury was then calculated...

    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...
