ANDalyze - Model Mercury 100 - Mercury Sensor for Water - 2ppb
From Heavy Metal Sensors
Sensors and Kits Each disposable color-coded sensor is designed for a specific heavy metal test target. Kits provide sampling tubes, syringes and cuvettes. Sensors, supplies and fluorimeter are also sold separately. Call for ordering information. ANDalyze’s proprietary Catalytic DNA sensors use a DNAzyme reaction mechanism that fluoresces in the presence of a target contaminant substance such as lead. The fluorescence of the reaction is measured to determine the toxicity of the target heavy metal and is reported in parts per billion (ppb). Using the product to test for lead is a simple, quantitative test that allows for detection of lead at or below EPA standards for lead in drinking water. The test is performed by taking a 1 milliliter water sample, injecting it through the sensor housing, and into a culture tube. This sample is then automatically analyzed by the fluorimeter, and quantitative results are reported in less than two minutes.
